Banksy Snorting Copper Unveiled in Shoreditch, London

On Thursday 5 October, Banksy's Snorting Copper was unveiled to a select few in Shoreditch. The lost piece of street art history has been resurrected nearly 10 years after it appeared. Hamilton Court Development bought the building that the Snorting Copper resided. We had eyes on the ground at the exclusive event... Oh and special guest appearance from the Mayor of Hackney!

 

It means a lot to have had Philip Glanville, the @mayorofhackney reveal the Banksy last week. Thank you for welcoming the piece back to its home and supporting the local art scene. We 💙 Hackney. • #hackney #mayorofhackney #banksy
