BANKSY makes his mark in Devon

An 8ft-high mural of a young boy drawing a robot was discovered splayed across a wall of the Grosvenor Hotel, Torquay, by the hotel's owners on Monday morning.

The owners first thought it was some local graffiti (impressive!), but after people started raising their Banksy-esque suspicions the hotel boarded it up for protection and are planning to cover it in Perspex so that people can see it.

Although Banksy hasn't officially confirmed the work as his own he has since posted a picture of it on his website... hmm!

Me likes a lot.


On a similar note, if you're interested in the underground works and thoughts of some of the worlds best street artists you MUST (if you haven't already) watch the Banksy Film 'Exit Through the Gift Shop'... in it's own sardonic words; 'the incredible true story of how the greatest graffiti film of all time was never made'. In my own; hilarious, exciting and insightful, yet as irreverent as it is revealing...
