‘God bless Birmingham’, says Banksy

Elusive artist Banksy has created new artwork in Birmingham, a festive-themed piece highlighting homelessness

The artwork features in a film on Instagram that shows a man named Ryan on a bench being “pulled” by two reindeer painted on a brick wall in the city’s Jewellery Quarter.

Unveiling the work, Banksy praised the generosity of people who gave Ryan food and drink while they filmed.

The post said: “God bless Birmingham. In the 20 minutes we filmed Ryan on this bench passers-by gave him a hot drink, two chocolate bars and a lighter – without him ever asking for anything.”
