#1 New mural in Taibach

Residents of the Taibach in South Wales found Banksy’s graffiti on two walls of a garage owned by a local steelworker.

This artwork is a tribute to the city’s past, showing a kid catching something that looks like snow. But on the other wall, we can see that it’s not snow, but ashes from the fire.

The councilor of the city told CNN that he liked the work. “I have been to visit the piece and although I am no graffiti expert it certainly looks the real deal and there’s a high possibility it’s a genuine Banksy piece,” he said.

“Regardless of authenticity it at the very least highlights the beauty of graffiti and excitement that quality work generates,” he added.

#2 Girl With Balloon

The Girl With Balloon (2002) was drawn on the south bank stairway of the Waterloo Bridge in London, Blackfriars Bridge. This is an iconic artwork and the best selling work of Banksy, sold at £1,042,000 at Sotheby’s auction in 2018.

Immediately after the auction, the picture began to self-destruct with the help of a hidden mechanical shredder embedded in the frame below. Banksy released a video of the preparation of this performance, explaining that the shredder was built a few years ago “in case the picture is ever put up for auction”.

As an explanation of such an act, Banks stated that striving for destruction is also a creative impulse.

#3 The Well Hung Lover

This mural originally located at Frogmore Street in Bristol, but then it changed the location due to the vandalism.

The Well Hung Lover is an artwork of a naked man hanging from a window, while a husband is looking out the window with a nervous semi-nude wife stays behind him.

“The world is the biggest joke going. It’s a rest home for the overprivileged, the pretentious, and the weak. And modern is a disgrace – never have so many people used so much stuff and taken so long to say so little,” Banksy said.

#4 The Little Girl Frisking an Israeli Soldier

The artwork is located in the Holy Land at the West Bank barrier wall in the Palestinian city.

The Little Girl Frisking an Israeli Soldier is one of the most controversial murals of Banksy as it shows a little girl frisking an Israeli soldier, which is an ironic view on the occupation of Palestinians and Israel illegal ‘wall’.

#5 The Flower Thrower

The Flower Thrower was drawn in 2003. A man, a rebel, wears a handkerchief and armed with a bouquet of flowers instead of a grenade or Molotov cocktail.

The artwork was drawn in black and white, but the bouquet was made in bright colors.

#6 Follow Your Dreams (Cancelled)

The artwork depicts a disappointed painter standing next to the sign that reads “FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS” with a mark saying ‘CANCELLEd’.

#7 Migrant Birds

Migrant Birds mural was made in 2014 and was later removed by Clacton Council because some people complained about racism.

It depicts pigeons holding anti-immigration banners in front of colorful bird.
