The new work of art seems to come from the comfort of his home.
In the installation, which Banksy shared on his official Instagram page on Wednesday morning, the artist’s signature rats are seen in anger and causing chaos in what appears to be his own bathroom.
Banksy’s highly regarded graffiti is generally found in remote and obscure locations around the world, but with the new coronavirus pandemic, it seems he has had no choice but to work from home.
Although he has done indoor installations in the past, it seems to be the first in nearly three decades of Banksy’s career in which he has taken a look at his fans and subscribers in his home – or at least part of it.

Another of the infamous rodents also appears to be casually urinating in Banksy’s restroom, making a mess all over the seat, while one jumped on a tube of toothpaste, splashing it all over the wall.
Meanwhile, other pests appear to have moved the artist’s mirror, while another sees its reflection make red marks on the opposite wall.

Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you should know:
Health authorities warn against all international travel. Return travelers are legally required to self-isolate for 14 days, starting March 26, in case they develop symptoms and to prevent the spread of the virus to others. Some provinces and territories have also implemented additional recommendations or enforcement measures to provide self-isolation for people returning to the region.
Symptoms may include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing – very similar to a cold or the flu. Some people may develop a more serious illness. Those most at risk are the elderly and people with serious chronic conditions such as heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.
