If You Don't Mask, You Don't Get

BackgroundEdit

Banksy posed as a cleaner in order to paint the mural inside a London Underground carriage.[3] The title is thought to be a play on words for the saying "If you don't ask, you don't get." Other slogans linked to the UK band Chumbawamba were used in the mural.[4]
