Banksy is an artist who expresses his talent with flare on the sides of buildings in cities in the U.K. Each painting expresses a viewpoint on controversial social-political issues and has obviously been created by someone with talent. There is a large, international following of this man’s work.

Sadly, many of the uniquely original Banksy works have disappeared, having been painted over or removed in some other manner. As the works cannot be carried home by would-be collectors, fans clamor to locate and view authentic Banksy paintings while they still can. Naturally, this is not possible for many people around the world.

The Banksy London Tour app makes it easy for users to virtually visit these giant masterpieces. There are twenty-four photos, which include multiple shots of each mural. They not only provide immediate gratification for fans but also serve as a memento in the event that one or more of the paintings disappear. All of the pictures come complete with detailed descriptions.
