No Entry Stickman

I was delighted to spot this piece of art on the corner of Exeter Street and Wellington Street in London yesterday:

Exeter Street No Entry Sign

I wonder how many people walk past every day without noticing it.

Does anyone know who the artist is? I’ve Googled but couldn’t find any mention of the piece. It reminds me of Banksy’s rat, but I doubt it’s by Banksy. Naturally, it also reminds me of Stik, but it’s not his usual style. Do leave a comment if you’ve heard anything about this piece. Thanks! 🙂

    Here’s an example from Paris. Somewhere south of Gare de l’Est, but I don’t remember the exact location.
