New Banksy Piece Spotted in Bristol, U.K.

Art, Banksy, GraffitiFollowing from recent hoax alleging Banksy‘s arrest, a new piece has surfaced in the iconic street artist’s hometown, Bristol, U.K. In usual fashion, Banksy took to his webpage to unveil the rendition. Titled The Girl with the Pierced Eardrum, the satirical piece is a parody of Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer’s Girl With A Pearl Earring. Painted via Banksy’s trademark stencil approach and the help of a fire extinguisher, the artwork cleverly features the building wall’s alarm bell as the girl’s ear piece and was created in a district where many local art and music studios reside. After Banksy posted the images online, the piece was quickly defaced with a splash of black paint. Check out The Girl with the Pierced Eardrum above and share your thoughts below.
