Banksy claims authorship of several works that have recently appeared in England. The British street artist posted, Friday, August 13, a video of just over three minutes on Instagram, entitled “A Great British Spraycation”.

On a concrete buttress of an English beach, Banksy added a rat, his favorite rodent, sipping a cocktail in a deckchair.

In the small town of King’s Lynn in eastern England, Banksy gives the statue of engineer Frederick Savage, famous for his steam engines, an ice cream cone and tongue to savor it.
On the roof of a bus shelter, he invites dancers and an accordion player, on a miniature house of the Merrivale Model Village, a mention “Go big or go home”.
In recent years, the contemporary Bristol artist, who skilfully maintains the mystery of his identity, has kept contemporary art circles spellbound with his emblematic causes – migrants, opposition to Brexit, denunciation of Islamists – and has driven sales to auction.
