Our resident blogger, Sandra Butterfly, has been on it with Santa's Ghetto's successor, Marks & Stencils show in SOHO in London. As you probably know, Banksy is the producer/curator of said event, aimed to get Xmas shoppers to buy cheaper, good street art.

It also features the French street artist Dran (who has a show at PIctures on Walls at the moment) and there will apparently be some new pieces by Banksy as well.

This piece, by artist Mark Sinckler, is causing a bit of a stir in London, obviously the subject matter getting a bit close to the heart of the incident that occured close to the site of Marks & Stencils on July 7, 2005. More on this piece when we can.

Here are some of Sandra's images.
