A potential Banksy has appeared on Vale Street in Bristol, United Kingdom on December 10, 2020. The elusive artist is from the city and is known for creating new works without anyone catching him in the act.
An image of an old woman sneezing without covering her mouth has been spotted on a wall in the Totterdown area – a possible nod to the current health crisis. Crowds are already gathering at the bottom of Vale Street – one of Britain’s steepest roads – to take pictures and discuss.
According to Sun: “Aileen Makin, who owns the house, was due to exchange contracts for the sale of the semi-detached Bristol home next week. But the family said yesterday they had pulled out of the sale after an art dealer valued the home at £5,000,000 since Banksy’s mural appeared. The average house price on the street is £300,000, according to Zoopla.”
“Nicholas now claims the artwork – named “Aachoo!!” – is actually costing them money after the family installed an alarm system and perspex screen to protect it.”
