Street Artist Banksy Is Also Working From Home
And his wife "hates it."
(SPOT.ph) With most of the world implementing social restrictions—from community quarantines to total lockdowns—most people have to work from home. Teachers are holding classes online, reporters are broadcasting from their basement, and musicians are holding gigs and concerts via streaming. Famous street artist Banksy—known for thought-provoking works of art drawn overnight on parking lots, pavements, and public walls—has also adapted to this new normal amid the COVID-19 pandemic. In an Instagram post on April 16, he showed a set of illustrated images of rats wreaking havoc in his bathroom. Accompanying it is a caption that says, "My wife hates it when I work from home."
These stylized rodents, which were also featured in his previous works, seem to interact with actual things inside the bathroom. One is hanging from the bathroom mirror, another is swinging on a towel ring, and there's one that's stepping on a tube of toothpaste. There's also a rat that seems to be walking on a roll of toilet paper, and another attempting to knock off a bottle of shampoo.
How's that for a site-specific work of art?
