Yesterday we reported on acclaimed street artist Banksy and his work on a London subway train.

It didn’t last long.  The art has been scrubbed off

The art was centred on on the subject of COVID-19 and provided a visual warning on the dangers of skipping face coverings.

Banksy uploaded a video Tuesday that showed him, clad in a white boiler suit, mask, and goggles spray painting on a Circle Line train.  He even stenciled his trademark rats in discreet corners of a train car; one memorable image shows a sickly rat with a runny nose that sneezes and spreads a spray of droplets across a window.

Officials say the works were removed because of a strict anti-graffiti policy, but they liked what they saw and are offering the artist the opportunity to do a new version of his message, but in a more suitable location.
