Word’s spreading of a new Banksy piece in Glastonbury town, in a pre-festival style like last year. The piece is apparently on the side of the Abbey Moor Football Stadium, but so far the only pic that seems to be around is a tiny one on a newspaper website.
Have a read of the story and check out the photo below (taken from the newspaper website, have had a play with it in photoshop but has anyone got a decent bigger photo anywhere?). Dunno, doesn’t immediately look right somehow, that running girl is a bit 2D, and the policemen look a bit overdone. Be interesting to see if it’s officially confirmed as one.
Have had a chat with the Central Somerset Gazette about it, and they’re interested to know if it’s genuine or not (doesn’t seem like it’s been confirmed as genuine by anyone other than the club owners).
So, suspect it’s a honest mistake / misidentification. Happily, the Central Somerset Gazette’s been good enough to send over this higher res photo for this blog.
Closer up on the policemen
…and on the little girl running away with the ball.
What do you think? 99.99% certain it’s not genuine here. Have your say here or on the Central Somerset Gazette website.
