Banksy, the hula hoop girl is his: a sign of proximity to Nottingham, hit by Covid

Banksy, the most famous writer in the world, wanted to leave his sign of solidarity in Nottingham, one of the British cities most affected by Covid with a new work: the drawing by a little girl playing with the Hula Hoop. Where for the Hula Hoop the wheel removed from a bicycle (the one for, real, not drawn) attached for who knows how long to a light pole. the game of reality that enters art (and vice versa), typical of Banksy and which this time the author himself wanted to “authenticate” by posting the photo on his Instagram profile. The graffiti appeared on the morning of October 15 on a building on Ilkeston road, at the corner with Rothesay Avenue, and immediately attracted small crowds of onlookers. So much so that the city authorities have decided to protect the work with a plexiglass panel even before Banksy posted the photo on Instagram.

Banksy’s last artistic “action” dates back to last July: to encourage people to wear masks on a subway train in London, the artist had painted mice and written with spray paint and then posted the video on his profile Instagram. In August the artist wanted to finance a humanitarian action in the Mediterranean Sea with a boat. the Louise Michelle: on the hull her “signature”: a drawing of a little girl in a life jacket holding a heart shaped life buoy.
Banksy began graffiti graffiti on trains and walls in his hometown of Bristol in the 1990s, and quickly became famous around the world.
