A Suspiciously Banksy-Esque Mural Has Appeared In Marble Arch

A powerful mural appeared next to Extinction Rebellion’s camp in Marble Arch last week.

Looking suspiciously Banksy-esque, the work shows a child holding an Extinction Rebellion logo next to a sapling, with the words ‘From this moment despair ends and tactics begin’ [sic]. The quote has been taken from Raoul Vaneigem’s The Revolution of Everyday Life. (Photo: @amityyy)

Although it’s certainly his style, Banksy would usually confirm if a mural is his via his Instagram account. That doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not his, but people are sceptical.

However, The Guardian have reported that expert John Brandler, who owns a dozen pieces by the artist, is convinced. And Extinction Rebellion seem pretty sure that it’s his work, too:

Whoever the mysterious graffiti artist is, it’s a pretty powerful piece of work.
