British street artist Jamie Scanlon (aka JPS) creates clever and wonderfully rendered street paintings that are inspired by Banksy. Scanlon recounts in a Bored Panda post how a visit to a 2009 Banksy exhibition inspired him to address his drug and alcohol problems and pursue street art himself. Banksy’s influence is also clear in Scanlon’s street art, and in particular, his stencils. Scanlon has more work on his Facebook page. He also has paintings available for purchase.
