Again, artist Banksy hits it spot on with his latest piece sarcastically titled 'Cardinal Sin'. The artist cut the face off of the statue and replaced it with a 'pixelated' face very similar to when faces are shown on tv or in the newspapers. This can be seen at the Walker Gallery in Liverpool where it is on permenant display.

Here are some photos of Banksy's recent installation of a Monopoly Board at the Occupy London protests in St Paul's Cathedral. I love the TOX graff piece on the hotel :)
Remember, U.K. viewers only for now! I will post again when a version is available for North America.

Los Angeles Times: The British street artist known as Banksy likes to stay under the radar in terms of public exposure, eluding the press and generally shunning the spotlight. Lately however, the anonymous artist has been gradually creeping out of the shadows, sort of. Banksy directed the hit pseudo-documentary "Exit Through the Gift Shop," which was released last year and earned the artist an Oscar nomination. This summer, he is teaming with L.A.'s Museum of Contemporary Art to provide free admission to its blockbuster street-art exhibition on Mondays. Banksy is sponsoring free Monday admission for all visitors to the museum's Geffen Contemporary space in Little Tokyo for the duration of the exhibition "Art in the Streets," running through Aug. 8. The show highlights the history of street and graffiti art and features works by Banksy, Shepard Fairey and other genre notables. MOCA even provided a quote from Banksy himself: "I don’t think you should have to pay to look at graffiti. You should only pay if you want to get rid of it." The museum said that free admission to the Geffen Contemporary will be Mondays from 11 am to 5 pm June 13 through Aug. 8. "Art in the Streets" has been met with controversy since its inception. MOCA was criticized for removing a commissioned outdoor mural by the street artist Blu. In addition, local officials have reported an increase in graffiti and tagging in the neighborhood surrounding the Geffen. MOCA reports that the exhibition has been a success with visitors, saying that it has drawn record attendance. The exhibition will travel to the Brooklyn Museum in 2012.
