Happy Valentine's Day from Banksy

Feb 14, 2020

A suspected new Banksy mural that appeared in Bristol's Barton Hill yesterday has been officially confirmed by the elusive artist as his. First spotted on February 13th, the artwork was claimed by Banksy at midnight on Valentine's Day through his Instagram and website. The piece depicts a young girl firing a slingshot of red flowers made with spray painted ivy seeming playing with themes of love, violence and innocence.
