Banksy Paints a Satirical New Stencil in U.K.'s Hull City

“DRAW THE RAISED BRIDGE!”

By //Arts

Banksy recently took to Instagram to unveil a new stencil painted on the dilapidated Scott Street Bridge in England’s Kingston-upon-Hull city. The satirical artwork ostensibly features a young boy brandishing a sword and shield while wearing a strainer on his head. Alongside the stencil is spraypainted text that relays “DRAW THE RAISED BRIDGE!” Collectively, the artwork marks the first Banksy piece in Hull.
