Elusive British Hula Hoop street artist Banksy confirmed on Saturday that a new artwork appearing on a wall in Nottingham, central England depicting a girl using a bicycle tire as a hula-hoop is his work.
The work appeared Tuesday on a red-brick beauty salon wall, next to a bicycle that was tied to a metal sign and had no rear wheel.
A snapshot of his work in the city’s student area was posted on Banksy’s Instagram post and website on Saturday.
Banksy is known for witty works of art that often contain powerful references to world events.
His work this year mentions the coronavirus crisis and the Black Lives Matter movement.
In August, he financed a boat with a team of volunteers to rescue refugees in the Mediterranean trying to reach Europe from Africa.
