  • A suspected new mural by artist Banksy

A piece of street art has appeared in Banksy's hometown of Bristol, with speculation that it could be the work of the elusive artist.

It depicts a young girl in his signature black and white stencil style firing a slingshot that explodes into a playful arrangement of red flowers, to mark Valentine's Day.

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

Banksy seemingly confirmed the artwork by posting two images on his official Instagram account and on the front of his official website.

Kelly Woodruff, 37, who owns the property, said she was "over the moon" with the painting. Most people I've spoken to think it 100 per cent is, and they're naming it the Valentine's Banksy.

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

News of the new graffiti broke on Twitter from the Bristol Somali Community Association on Thursday morning, stating that it had woken up to the "remarkable mural art painted on one of the houses of the area".

The family is hoping to preserve the piece by putting glass over it, Woodruff said.

The unexpected art piece quickly became an attraction, as many believed the work to be of Banksy, the anonymous artist known for his often political street art.

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

Appearing yesterday, February 13, the piece is presumed to be Valentine's Day-themed.
