New Banksy Piece Emerges In North London

Mar 19 2024 Share

A tree mural on the facade of some apartments in North London has been claimed by world renowned street artist Banksy after confirming the mural as his in an Instagram post, following speculation after the work appeared on a building on Hornsey Road in Finsbury Park overnight.⁠

The artwork which is painted on a wall behind a tree also features a life-sized portrayal of a woman wielding a pressure washer, seen spraying green paint up the side of the wall. Given the wall is behind a tree, the collection of green paint mimics the leaves and branches of a tree that has been removed due to a  process known as pollarding.

Many people gathered to see the artwork on Monday morning. Wanja Sellers, who lives nearby on Hornsey Road, expressed her pride and joy, saying, “We’re so proud and delighted that Banksy chose our road and chose Finsbury Park for his work.”

Before creating this piece, Banksy’s last confirmed artwork was in December. He painted military drones onto a stop sign in Peckham, South London. Unfortunately, the artwork was removed less than an hour after Banksy confirmed its authenticity on social media. Witnesses reported that a man used bolt cutters to take it down. Subsequently, two men were arrested on suspicion of theft and criminal damage.
