Coronavirus has forced half of the world’s population to work from home. And joining the bandwagon in style is Britain’s most sought for street artist – Banksy! While urban spaces and concretes are his go-to canvases, he has currently been compelled to bring out productivity within the four walls and more specifically in his toilet! Yes, that’s right!
The artist shared his latest work on Instagram with a caption reading – “My wife hates it when I work from home.” The series showcases a notorious gang of rats at work with one squirting out toothpaste, while another toppling over the mirror on the wall. The creatures can also be seen pushing down a bottle of soap and peeing all over the toilet seat in the pictures.
Within minutes of being uploaded, Banksy’s quirky artwork went viral on the internet. It has been liked 1.7 million times on Instagram with users finding relatability and a sense of solidarity in his ‘work from home’ remark. In the past as well, the artist’s pieces have been highly appreciated by fans with his work garnering a whopping $1.4M in an online sale hosted by Sotheby’s recently. His most expensive art to date is a chimp parliament painting named Devolved Parliament which was sold for a grand $12M at auction. Well, here’s hoping for more of Banksy’s quirk in the times of coronavirus!
