A new Banksy in London?Domenico Olivero (translated by Savina Carluccio)
The small piece represents a child curled up sewing a Union Jack flags banner hung nearby.
There is no confirmation of the authorship, but already in Britain, and not only there, everyone talks about.
The phenomenon Banksy is definitely one of the most interesting cases that contemporary art has had in recent years. If Damien Hirst represents a certain heaviness and boredom, the mysterious graffiti artist continues to fascinate and harvest success. It is known about him that was born in Bistrol perhaps in 1974 and travels the world with a unique style now imitated all over the globe.
His ability to combine style and ideas in a practical and realistic way has won over the vast global audience.
