Last week the local paper ran an article about a stencil on the front of the doomed Odeon cinema. Their hope was the artwork was by the graffiti artist Banksy and this would be a lifeline and save the building. It's sad the art deco building isn't worth saving on its own merit. It hasn't just appeared, it has been there for well over a year. Should it matter if it's a Banksy or not, we really know it's not the art it's the money it might be worth. Banksy's artworks are often satirical pieces of art on topics such as politics, culture, and ethics.
