21st Oct 2014: New Banksy mural outside SU Bristol
21st October 2014
Crowds gather to see the new Banksy, ‘Girl With a Pierced Ear Drum,’ outside Studio Upstairs Bristol.
On Monday 21 October 2014 a mysterious new mural appeared outside Studio Upstairs Bristol – a twist on the famed ‘Girl With A Pearl Ear Ring’, by Dutch master Johannes Vermeer.
By the afternoon of the same day, the artwork was confirmed to be a Banksy, via his official website.
Overnight, the mural was vandalised with the throwing of dark grey paint over the lower section of the work – and the media’s attention was soon turned towards Studio Upstair’s corner of Bristol.
Speculation continues as to whether Banksy has located the artwork intentionally to raise awareness of our work or the surrounding area; you can read more on this here.
