Take it to the Banksy! Banksy unveils new artwork on wall of Nottingham beauty salon

Take it to the Banksy! Nottingham beauty salon strikes it rich as Banksy unveils new artwork of a girl hula-hooping with a ruined bike’s tyre on its wall

  • The secretive street artist has confirmed a wall mural in Nottingham is his work 
  • The black and white stencilled image shows a girl hula hooping with a bike tyre
  • A bicycle missing its back wheel also appeared chained up next to the mural 
  • The wall mural is now worth more than the average house price on the street 

Street artist Banksy has posted a picture of a mural of a little girl hula hooping with a bicycle tyre on his Instagram account, ending speculation over whether he was behind the work.

The piece appeared on a wall last Tuesday on the corner of Rothesay Avenue in Lenton, Nottingham.

Now confirmed as a Banksy, the wall mural is worth more than the street’s average house price of £214,280.

Sprayed in black and white, the tongue-in-cheek image sits just behind a battered bike chained to a lamp post with an infinity lock.

The bike is missing a tyre.

Surinder Kaur, 42, who runs the beauty salon next to the artwork, said the bike had appeared at the same time as the mural.

‘He brought the bike with him – there is one tyre on the bike and the other tyre is in the picture as the little girl’s hula hoop,’ Kaur said. 

She told the PA news agency that within hours, the council had rushed to protect the piece by placing clear plastic sheeting over it.

Vandals have sprayed painted over the plastic two or three times already.

‘Everyone is very excited and many, many people are coming to see the picture,’ Ms Kaur said.

‘Everyone was confused about whether it was real or not real but it’s an amazing picture, it’s amazing art.’

Banksy’s ‘Devolved Parliament’ – featuring the Houses of Parliament filled with chimpanzees – sold for £9.9 million last year, setting a new record for his work according to valuation website MyArtBroker.com.

Many of his murals have also been lifted from walls and sold, with Kissing Coppers – an image of two male police officers in an embrace on the side of a Brighton pub – selling for £350,000 in 2011. 

Lots of people have been coming to visit the mural. Pictured: Young people pose for photos in front of the new Banksy artwork
