Over the weekend, the ever elusive Banksy unveiled a new piece in East Yorkshire in the city of Hull. Stenciled on what looks to be a permanently raised abandoned drawbridge, the image of a boy with a colander helmet can be seen with a cape and sword with the words DRAW THE RAISED BRIDGE! Believed to be a piece with anti-Brexit leanings, the Bristol-based street artist is once again stirring up the pot with placement in a city that predominantly backed the UK leaving the EU (67.6% vote). As it often the case with Mr. B’s work, it’s also what happens afterwards that makes the news with the piece already whitewashed by some anonymous hater(s) and then restored and protected.
