The graffiti is on Sutton's Beddington Farm Road, near to Ikea
The fate of a mural by graffiti artist Banksy hangs in the balance as the public have been asked to decide whether it should be preserved.
The vote in London borough Sutton has seen initial support for the artist.
More than 85% of people who responded to calls on whether the work should stay have urged the council to keep it.
The mural shows a punk standing by a box labelled IEAK apparently reading instructions on how to put together a graffiti slogan.
Despite usually operating a zero-tolerance stance on graffiti, the council has made an exception for this piece of work.
"The Banksy work has really caught the imagination and we will be keeping an open mind until the end of the public vote," said Councillor Colin Hall.
"We're well aware that many people see a difference between mindless tagging and work such as this."
More than 80 people emailed Sutton Council last weekend with their views.
