Banksy: Possible new mural by mysterious street artist discovered in Bristol

The piece of street art has appeared in Banksy's hometown of Bristol, with speculation that it could be the work of the elusive artist. The owner of the house has described his delight at finding out that the potential Banksy artwork had appeared on his property - and on his birthday. The new piece of street art apparently created by Banksy appeared in his home city of Bristol. Residents in the Barton Hill area of the city woke up to the artwork on the side of the house this morning. Some new graffiti has popped up in Bristol's Barton Hill that looks like it could be a Valentine's Day present from Banksy.

The artwork shows a young girl firing roses from a slingshot, creating an explosion of petals that look not unlike a blood splatter (but are actually spray-painted ivy).

The mural which appeared overnight has left many Bristolians puzzled, though local residents say they discovered the artwork on the side of a building in Marsh Lane around 6:20am this morning (February 13). She said: "I think it's lovely, it's got ivory and roses so you've got a mixture for Valentines Day. 19-year-old Chancy who also lives in the neighbourhood is a fan of Banksy's work thinks the artwork is "cool" but puzzled as to what it could mean. He says the artwork looks like something Banksy would do and does not believe there are many artists in Bristol that could have created the masterpiece.
