Strasbourg and Banksy? The last post?

OK.  As in all good soaps and other regular TV programmes, the story so far.

I posted here about a piece of outdoor art I had seen locally on the side of a florists and asked whether it might have anything to do with the renowned graffiti and outdoor artist known as Banksy. The verdict of the people I consulted via Facebook and Twitter was in accord with my view that this was not in fact an example of his work and that it was therefore not by him.

In response I received a comment from a fellow Strasbourg blogger about another piece of outdoor art that was close to the above item.  As a result I went out to walk around the area and discovered the piece of outdoor art in the second picture.  The response to my publishing this on Facebook and Twitter has been agreement that this is much more in the style of Banksy and therefore either is the man himself or a good copyist.  At the end of yesterday’s post I promised a revelation today.

Well here it is.  Across the river from the previous item was another piece that would also seem to be in the style of Banksy.  It doesn’t answer the question whether it is him or a copyist and is the sum total of the images or are there other examples out there? Have a good weekend.

    Thanks for preserving the Petit-France art-work. I’m pretty convinced that it’s no Banksy, though I’m not exactly a specialist. Nevertheless I liked it, but it got torn apart recently.
