Banksy | The Bristol Legend

Jun 7, 2016

Bridge Farm primary school changed their house names to Bristol legends, and the students selected Banksy as one of them.

The elusive street artist responded by leaving them a mural and (cheeky) note to show his gratitude for their tribute.

"Remember it's always easier to get forgiveness than permission."
