Banksy’s latest work sure hits close to home, doesn’t it? The painting was posted to the artist’s website on Monday, and then the original was finally found by a number of fans in Bristol, England, where he allegedly grew up. The British press has already given the painting the name “Mobile Lovers,” but I think we should call it “Jared Leto & Friend,” inspired by the infamous photo of Jared Leto texting while making out with Scarlett Johansson (see it after the jump). Clearly that was Banksy’s inspiration, right? Obviously. [Washington Post]
