Banksy’s ‘Make Tea Not War’ Resurrected in London

A few of you may remember an article I published earlier in the year entitled RIP BANKSY. It focused on the fact that a piece of Banksy street art had been painted over by a London council. A debate commenced about street artists, their work and the question of ownership.

After seeing ‘Make Tea Not War’ vanish around July 2010, imagine my shock when I saw the very same stencil used in Primrose Hill on 3rd January 2011.

Did Banksy get back at the council who painted over his previous stencil by painting it again in Primrose Hill? Did he choose the location more carefully this time, choosing to spray it onto a wall next to a tea shop?
Is this the first example of a resurrected painting?!!
