    'The Banker' is one of Paul ‘Don’ Smith’s tags. Paul is an urban artist who has been painting in London for more than 30 years. His stencil of a man in a bowler hat sitting in the shape of an old Victorian tap relates to the control of money. “Every year [money] is being re-jigged and re-thought…. More tax this year, less tax the next. On, off. Hot, cold…. Pressure is on, pressure is off. It’s all about valves…. He’s cool, sitting down, contemplating, looking forward," said Paul speaking to Little London Observationist.
