Banksy Hanging Man in Bristol

Vandals in Bristol have defaced one of Banksy’s most famous artworks. The artwork situated in Bristol’s Park Street is one of Banksy’s oldest murals, created in 2006.

The vandals defaced the picture and wrote ‘F*** Banksy’ beneath. The damage was first spotted on Saturday afternoon.

This is not the first time this classic Banksy has been attacked. In 2009 seven blue paintballs were fired at the mural from a bridge at the bottom of Park Street. Three of the splatters were removed, but Bristol City Council didn’t want to risk removing the others and damaging the artwork.

The new graffiti is tagged ‘Kapes’ and ‘Soak’.

Are these Rival Graffiti artists or simply mindless Vandals?
