Banksy believed to have left
another mark on London streets
It seems the famed street artist Banksy
might have left his mark on London once again, after a new
work of art was discovered in the depths of the city.
The painting, which depicts a youngster
kneeling in front of a sewing machine stitching a section of
union flag bunting has appeared on the wall of a
supermarket, located in Wood Green in North London. It’s a
dramatic piece, with passers by stopping in awe of the
artwork, which is emblazoned with real bunting.
Professor Paul Gough, an academic who
studied the work of the prolific artist, believes the image
possesses all the tell tale signs of an authentic Banksy
piece. He said: "The stencil is very well cut, the quality
of the spraying and that unique feathered edge that he is
able to achieve when painting white on to black is
reminiscent of several other pieces in the capital."
It is the first time the artist has hit
that area of the capital since 2009, after painting children
playing with a No Ball Games sign in Tottenham Court Road.
If you happen to be staying in any of the
London hostels in the coming months, why not come along
and admire this unique work of art?
