This stenciled COVID-themed artwork appeared on Vale Street, one of Britain’s steepest residential roads. On Thursday, Banksy went online to confirm that the mural was, in fact, painted by him. The artist posted a few pictures capturing the artwork on his Instagram account. “Aachoo!!” he wrote in the description of his post.

 

On Thursday, Banksy confirmed that the artwork was, in fact, created by him

According to the BBC, a local resident named Dale Comley saw a “bulky guy in a high-vis jacket” early on Thursday morning who he thinks was Banksy. “I saw a man in a high-vis jacket leaning against the railings opposite—he was looking at the wall the whole time. Then about an hour later, I looked out and saw loads of people in the street,” the man shared with the BBC.

In case you didn’t know, Banksy is an anonymous street artist, political activist, and film director from Britain that began his artistic journey in the 1990s. The artist is most known for his spray-painted murals that are often satirical, thought-provoking and featuring political messages. To this day, Banksy’s identity and name remain unconfirmed.

 

Earlier this year, Banksy spray-painted the London underground with COVID-themed rats

The artist has also painted this little girl hula-hooping with a bicycle tire in Nottingham
