New Banksy in Somerset

Just last week, not far from Weston Super Mare - the site of Banksy's famous Dismaland, a new Banksy street piece was erected in the small seaside town of Clevedon. 

The small street sign installation depicted two elderly people being carried by two children. Many of Banksy's followers argued that the work was a comment on Brexit and the uncertain future of the younger generation. 

A comment on Brexit?

The artist posted an image of the work on his Instagram once the piece was up which was shortly followed by thousands of comments and re-posts regarding the meaning of the work.

The street sign was last spotted on Friday 10 August shortly after Banksy's post. It is still unclear as to whether the work was stolen or removed by Banksy. 

Close to home

Clevedon is close to Bristol - believed to be the home of the elusive Street Artist. Banksy has continued to work on sites close to this area throughout his career. 2015's Dismaland saw an incredible shift in the economy of the sleepy town of Weston Super Mare. Unbeknown to them, the artist commissioned hundreds of local craftsmen from the area to build his dismal theme park.
