Tox, June 2011






Date: June 2011
Location: Jeffrey Street, London, England

This Banksy stencil figure appeared on Jeffrey Street in Camden in June 2011, as an addition to graffiti artist Daniel Halpin’s, also known as Tox.  Tox was previously convicted for tagging multiple locations in London over a period of three years and was mocked as ‘no Banksy’ by the prosecution due to his lack of creative artistry with his graffiti works.



As a response, Banksy created an artwork of a little boy blowing the Tox tag as a bubble – whether as an act of solidarity or to make fun of the other artist is up to the public to decide. It’s undoubtedly one of his cheekier pieces that stays true to his graffiti artist roots and shows his enduring connection to the London scene.
