Banksy’s coronavirus-inspired artwork appears on Tube

Banksy has returned to the London Underground with a piece encouraging people to wear a face mask.

In a video posted on his Instagram page, the street artist is seen entering an underground train carriage while dressed as a member of the cleanup crew before stencilling the rats, which are depicted as using the masks as parachutes and dispensing hand sanitiser.

Transport for London (TfL) said the art was removed “some days ago” in line with its “strict anti-graffiti policy”.
