Banksy Confirms Bristol Valentine’s Day Artwork is His

An artwork that appeared on the side of a house in Bristol has been confirmed as the work of street artist Banksy

The piece features a stencil of a girl firing red flowers made with spray-painted ivy from a catapult. Banksy published a picture of the work on his Instagram page at midnight on Valentine’s Day.

Kelly Woodruff, whose father owns the property in Barton Hill, said they now wanted to protect the “special” work from the approaching Storm Dennis.

“As it’s Valentine’s Day, it’s really special and to have it in 3D with the flowers is incredible,” said 37-year-old Ms Woodruff.

“There’s so many people coming and enjoying it, taking pictures, it’s fantastic.

“There’s been a lot of debate if it is a Banksy or not. Most people I’ve spoken to think it 100% is, and they’re naming it the Valentine’s Banksy.

“It’s incredible and beautiful.”
