Banksy confirms Valentine’s Day-inspired art in Bristol is his work

A Banksy Valentine’s Day mural has appeared in Bristol

Just in time for Valentine's Day, renowned graffiti artist Banksy has owned up to a piece of artwork depicting a girl firing red flowers from a slingshot that mysteriously appeared on the side of a building in England Thursday morning.

The piece shows a girl firing a catapult of red flowers which are made of spray-painted ivy.

The petals are then seen trickling down the side of a Victorian house located in the Barton Hill area.

Banksy posted an image of the work without a caption and so is yet to confirm the name of the new Valentine's Day art piece.

"There's so many people coming and enjoying it, taking pictures, it's fantastic", said Kelly Woodruff, whose father owns the property.

Banksy's street art often draws attention to social issues by adding elements of darkness to otherwise joyful scenes.

'There's been a lot of debate if it is a Banksy or not.

One person said: "I think it's lovely, it's got ivory and roses so you've got a mixture for Valentines Day".

However, an increasing number of cases have been identified as influenza A, which experts say is more likely to cause an epidemic. The UC San Diego Medical Center discharged four people Sunday after botched test results came back negative for the disease.

However, the Bristol piece had not appeared on either on Thursday morning.

"It's incredible and lovely", she added.

The family are looking to cover up the artwork with glass to preserve it.

"We hope it's Banksy's work".

"Come and have a look yourself".

One local resident, James Bullock, saw scaffolding on the wall at about 6.20am on Thursday.

In December, the elusive artist highlighted the issue of rough sleeping with a mural showing two flying reindeer pulling a homeless man on a street-bench sleigh, in the central English city of Birmingham.
