Anonymous street artist Banksy has struck again, doing what he does best – clandestinely painting murals on public walls.
The England-based illustrator has revealed he is behind a new mural that appeared in Nottingham, UK, earlier this week.
The mysterious street artist posted a photo of the mural on Instagram, which ended speculation regarding whether he was responsible for the artwork.
The graffiti, which is on Ilkeston Road in Radford, shows a young girl hula-hooping with the wheel of a bicycle, next to a real bike that is a missing a back wheel.
A local shop owner previously told the BBC a van “with blacked out windows” arrived on Tuesday evening (Oct.13), and the driver pretended his vehicle had broken down “but was there for at least two hours.”
They said the man bought two Ribena drinks from their shop and, when they asked who the artist was, the man simply “winked.”
Banksy’s identity is famously unknown to the public.
Last month, “Art Attack” presenter Neil Buchanan was forced to issue a denial after a bizarre conspiracy theory identifying him as the artist went viral.
Earlier this year, Banksy released a new piece inspired by the killing of George Floyd.
The piece showed a tribute to an anonymous black figure alongside a candle that had set the American flag on fire.
After posting the photo online, he wrote: “People of colour are being failed by the system. The white system. This is a white problem. And if white people don’t fix it, someone will have to come upstairs and kick the door in.”
