Banksy's Olympic Art is a Jab at Covering Up Graffiti for the Games

Beloved street artist Banksy has done it again and created more awesome works, this time in celebration of the 2012 London Olympic games. He's being awfully controversial too, considering how the city is trying to clean up all graffiti before the big games.

His newest pieces can be seen in the streets of London, which feature two Olympians. One of the pieces features an athlete throwing a rocket, while the other shows a pole-vaulter jumping over a broken-down fence. Both pieces are in black and white.

The Atlantic Wire Website states," Based on his new works, the artist clearly plans to use the olympics as fodder, essentially daring the city to carry out its threats against street art." Let's hope they don't make the mistake of covering up the awesome art works.
