It’s always easier to get forgiveness than permission

Students at a school in Bristol were asked to rename houses, and they chose to name one after the elusive street artist Banksy. They were surprised to arrive one morning and find he had painted this mural overnight…


…and left this note:

Dear Bridge Farm School, thanks for your letter and naming a house after me. Please have a picture, and if you don’t like it, feel free to add stuff. I’m sure the teachers won’t mind. Remember, it’s always easier to get forgiveness than permission. Much love, Banksy.
