I hope you’re all well and have had a restful weekend. This week brought some quite astounding news to my attention. You may have heard that Hull has its very own Banksy mural. I can’t believe it!! I have been away this weekend so had to patiently wait until this evening to see it.
It didn’t disappoint. I was absolutely blown away by it. It’s so unexpected, so unique. I’m honoured to have seen it. I’ve never experienced anything like this in my life. It felt like a time stopping moment. The more I looked, the more I saw; the more it meant.
As well as the art, I love the mystery that surrounds Banksy. I think that’s quite special. I’m happy to not know who he is. I like that veil to his character. That way, the art speaks for itself.
To some this may just be more graffiti. However, it’s brought many people out to see it. Who knew a disused bridge could be so popular?! I hope it’s preserved and cherished forever. Yet, the barriers haven’t been a welcomed asset.
Another unique element brought to the City of Culture, and I’ve seen it! I can’t quite believe it. Head down there and see it. You won’t be disappointed. It’s quite a feeling to have something so amazing on your doorstep.
It appears that whilst I was writing this, the mural has been destroyed.Absolutely devastated. Thank goodness I, and so many others, got to see it before this happened.
Update!! It appears that work has been done to rescue it. Thank goodness!! It’s just so amazing. We need to preserve it forever. We are lucky Banksy chose Hull after all.
Big love xx
