Banksy claims hula-hooping girl artwork in Nottingham, England


TORONTO – After much speculation, street artist Banksy has claimed responsibility for a new piece of art in Nottingham, England, showing a young girl hula-hooping with a bicycle tire. The graffiti artist posted a photo of the work on his Instagram feed on Saturday. Although he did not include a caption, the recluse artist often claims responsibility for the anonymous pieces on social media.

Painted outside a beauty salon in Nottingham, the work shows a young girl hula-hooping with a bicycle tire. According to reports, the artwork was first spotted on Tuesday next to a bicycle with a missing rear wheel.

Amid speculation over whether the coin was a Banksy, a screen was installed to cover it, according to the BBC.

In July, Banksy filmed himself dressed as a cleaner spraying graffiti on the London Underground in an effort to encourage people to wear masks amid the COVID-19 pandemic. In the clip, Banksy paints rats – one sneezing, another using a mask as a parachute, and another holding a bottle of disinfectant – before tagging the train with his nickname. The caption in the post reads, “If you don’t hide – you don’t get. “
