Banksy Claims Nottingham Hula-Hooping Girl Artwork

The graffiti artist Banksy has confirmed a piece of art that appeared in Nottingham was created by him.

The work, outside a beauty salon, shows a girl hula-hooping with a bicycle tyre. It went up on Tuesday, next to a bicycle that is missing its back wheel.

Amid speculation over whether the piece was a Banksy, a screen was fitted to it. In an ironic twist, soon afterwards the screen was sprayed with graffiti.

A picture of the work was posted on Banksy’s Instagram on Saturday morning.

He began spray-painting trains and walls in his home city of Bristol in the 1990s, and before long was leaving his artistic mark all over the world.

Banksy is famed for poking fun at big companies and sending political messages through his work.

The salon the artwork appeared outside is on the junction of Rothesay Avenue and Ilkeston Road in Lenton, a popular residential area for students.

It added: “Neil spent Lockdown with vulnerable members of his family and is now preparing to launch his new art collection in 2021. Thank you and please stay safe.”

Buchanan, from Liverpool, hosted Art Attack on ITV from 1990 until 2007, and was known for using the show to create ambitious, large-scale artworks – including a zoo scene made from sacks of vegetables, and a picture of a snail carved into a field by a lawnmower.

Rumours of his supposed alter-ego appear to have started when one user claimed that Banksy artworks had sprung up in places where Buchanan’s former band Marseille played gigs.

  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
