Banksy in Reading, UK

  • by

Banksy seems to be back with a brand new artwork that just appeared on Reading prison in the United Kingdom.

The stencil shows a man using knotted bedsheets to “escape” from the prison. The man could eventually be the famed writer Oscar Wilde, who did spend some time in the prison between 1895 and 1895 for “homosexual crimes.”. The history behind Mr Wilde has helped establish Reading Gaol as a historic landmark.

The structure is a grade 2 building located in Forbury Road which is owned by the Ministry of Justice.
