Was pleasantly surprised to see my latest effort making the local paper. It’s always nice when a piece gets a reaction and this one seems to have gained a lot of local support. In fact, the day after I painted it a note was stuck to the wall by a neighbour saying they liked it and over the next few days many of the locals added their own comments to it.
It does tickle me how everything gets assumed to be a Banksy these days and I can only imagine how irritating it must be for him to keep having stuff attributed to him. Equally it did make my wince a bit when the article seemed to suggest that people should stop getting so excited after it was confirmed that it wasn’t his work. Surely the point is that in the first instance they were struck by the image appearing in their neighbourhood overnight, not by who did it,….. No?
Anyway, I did it and it’s there for everyone and anyone to enjoy and that’s that….
