Banksy strikes again!  Artist confirms his originator of ‘spraycation’ works of art in British coastal towns

Written by George Engels, CNN

The UK hasn’t seen the sunniest summers, but that hasn’t stopped Banksy from popping into the seaside towns and leaving his mark.

In a video clip posted to Instagram, the enigmatic street artist confirmed he was responsible for several recently emerged works of art in British coastal communities.

The video titled “A Great British Spraycation” shows Banksy – his identity hidden, as usual – touring several cities in an aging cream-colored motorhome, armed with a cooler of paint cans. We see him briefly working on a few murals and adding some comedic touches to a statue.

One of the murals depicts a hermit crab guarding three empty shells, holding up a sign reading “Luxury Rentals Only” to three petitioning shellless crabs. In another mural near a beach, we see a rat relaxing in a lounge chair while raising a martini glass.

We can also hear a few passers-by.

“It sounds a lot like mindless vandalism,” says a woman after seeing a mural of a child handling a crowbar with a sandcastle in front of them.

Earlier this year, Banksy’s painting “Game Changer” honoring British healthcare workers set a record for the artist, selling for $ 23.1 million at Christie’s in London.
