Possible New Banksy?

A new piece of work that could possibly be attributed to the Bristol graffiti artist/activist Banksy popped up a week ago. While the piece does not bear the Banksy signature that has been present on previous pieces, the technique, style and content are consistent with other of his works.

Depicting a child sneaking up, armed with a blown up paper bag, behind an armed police officer, the work appeared opposite a children’s hospital.

According to BBC news, “Staff in the hospital fundraising office have e-mailed Banksy’s website asking if they can auction off the work, but have yet to receive a reply“.
