Construction work in Melbourne has resulted in the destruction of an artefact of the city’s street culture, a group of Banksy stencils.
The stencils are by the underground street artist Banksy.
Construction workers damaged the stencils when they were installing a doorway in AC/DC Lane.
The stencils were believed to have been created in 2003 by the anonymous British artist but now even the rubble containing the work has been loaded into a skip and dumped. Melbourne is the country’s street art capital.
