"JPS vs. Banksy"
The following is a Bored Panda user submission:
"My name is Jamie Scanlon and I am the UK-based street artist JPS.
I got into street art in 2009 after visiting Banksy’s excellent museum exhibition which inspired me to face up my problems with drinking and drugs.
I replaced all that buzz with illegally painting, although the greatest part is people liking my work and being able to feel as though I’m giving something back to the world. Here is a selection of some of my works."
Neatorama has featured work by JPS before, but it didn't include the inspirational story he revealed above. See more of Scanlon's posts on his Facebook page, and check out his recent Bored Panda post for more photos of his work.
