The anonymous street artist confirmed their involvement in a number of paintings that have gained public attention in the past few weeks in a post on Instagram. They appear to have been named A British Staycation’.


Another of Banksy’s works appeared in Great Yarmouth, with similar murals found in the seaside towns of Brean, Gorleston, Torquay and Lowestoft.

A video posted in Banksy’s Instagram account seems to claim responsibility for a number of the artworks, including one in Nicholas Everitt Park, Lowestoft in Suffolk that depicts three children in a boat accompanied by the message “We’re all in the same boat” written in the background.

In a video posted on Instagram with the name ‘Banksy’ shows the mantra “Go hard or go home” that was written on a new house in a model village in Great Yarmouth.

The video shows how some of the works were created and reactions from people who spotted the art.
