Banksy celebrates the Olympics

banksy1.jpg

You can't say you're surprised. When it comes to highly publicised national events, street artist/professional rascal Banksy is always ready with a damning piece or two and with the Olympics kicking off on Friday, he's up to his old tricks.

But given how stringent authorities are being over the impending games, will they be up for very long?

The location of the two pieces haven't been revealed after they were mysteriously posted on Banksy's official website which is a wise move.

So if you see them around, keep schtum yeah?
