Trying to find Banksy in London.

It’s truly a challenge to try finding Banksy in London, they’re often painted over, buffed, and you’re never really sure whether it’s a true Banksy or an imitation.

The one I found on Regent’s Canal in rumored to be a Banksy:

If you want to see it, just go to the Camden Lock Market, walk alongside the canal and you’ll see it soon enough.

What could also be a Bansky is at the entrance of Container City:

When I was walking near Belsize Park, I also noticed this (and try to take a proper picture with my Instax but the day was too bright it didn’t come out properly). It looks a lot like the Banksy rats.

Around Primrose Hill, I saw the ‘’Make tea not war’’ artwork, I was pretty sure it was a Banksy but turns out it’s not. :’(

Those two on the opposite street might be Banksy:

If you want to go see the ones on Primrose Hill, you’ll see the “Make tea not war” as you get out of Regent’s Park. To see the other two, just stay on the left side of the shopping streets, turn to the right after seeing this squirrel:

There’s always someone selling paintings next to them on weekends.

You can always buy maps, search online to find more but they are really hard to find. The only one you can see for sure is the one at the British Museum which became part of their permanent collection. You can also buy the book, Wall and Piece or watch Banksy’s Exit Through The Gift. ;-)

    These are great whether theyre all banksy or not. I know the canal one is definitely banksy's it was on his website and also on a documentary about a feud between him and another famous graffiti artist. Well done :)
