Boy, how the times have changed.

Arguably one of the most famous international street artists in the world, the ultra-political UK-based Banksy (whose works have sold for upwards of $2,000,000) is no stranger to the walls of Los Angeles. This massive mural at 9th and Broadway appeared in April of 2010, in conjunction with Banksy’s Exit Through The Gift Shop LA premiere.
