Banksy: ‘Mia the girl with the hula hoop’ – Art

Banksy claimed as his own the black and white mural of a young girl having fun with a hula hoop made from a bicycle tire, which recently appeared on the wall of a Nottingham hairdresser. By posting a photo of the work on his Instagram account, the artist put an end to speculation about his authorship, which had been raging since its appearance on Tuesday on the red brick wall of this central England town in the Borough of Lenton. Local authorities covered the work with clear plastic film to protect it.
