Street art with a twist

So it seems lately that Banksy had better start watching his back. The inarguable poster boy for street art has a number of pretenders to the throne and some of them are pretty peeved.

While we're clearly fans of the mysterious Bristolian, it looks like we might have a new favourite on the scene. The Spanish street artist, known as Spy, specialises in "interventional" pieces which are all about subverting the expected.

You can check out more of his work here.
