New Banksy Works Found Around English Coastal Towns
The world-renowned and still super anonymous street artist Banksy is back at it in the UK! Recently discovered around English coastal towns are 5 potential works by the secretive artist.
Three works popped up in Lowestoft with one featuring a large seagull hovering over an actual dumpster and another of a child holding a shovel placed near a mound of pavement sand portraying the act of building a sandcastle. Within the town’s Nicholas Everitt Park near the Oulton Broad, another painting was made out showing three children playing on a little boat. Originally an actual prow was attached to the wall but was temporarily removed by the Oulton Broad Parish Council due to the weather. A message along with the artwork reads, “We’re all in the same boat.”
In Gorleston, an arcade crane game lingers above a bench as to seemingly pick up pedestrians. While in Cromer, a hermit crab holds up a sign reading “luxury rentals only,” which spotlights Banksy’s known political tendencies.
Another potential work of the artist is located in Great Yarmouth which features a couple dancing along with an accordion player above a bus shelter. Among the town’s Merivale Model Village, a new cottage was added with a stencil of a rat and the words “Go Big or Go Home” sprayed on one side, while the name “Banksy” covers another side of the mini home.
