Banksy, Reading Prison

On the 1st March, artwork appeared on the side of the disused Reading Prison. From the style of the work, which depicted a prisoner escaping on a rope made of bedsheets tied to a typewriter, it was believed to be a work by Banksy. This was confirmed a few days later.

A couple of weeks later, the work was ‘defaced‘ by Team Robbo. King Robbo was a graffiti artist who had a long running feud with Banksy before his death in 2014.
