More art works have appeared in Suffolk this weekend that is thought to be the work of the elusive and world-renowned graffiti artist Banksy. His identity has always been a secret, but his works have sold for millions of pounds.
Seven pieces of art have popped up along the coast this weekend in Lowestoft, Gorleston and Great Yarmouth.
In mid-July Cllr Gallant, Leader of East Suffolk Council announced the joint bid by Great Yarmouth Borough Council and East Suffolk Council to become UK City of Culture 2025.
Great Yarmouth Borough Council's part of the joint bid focuses on the resort towns of Great Yarmouth, Gorleston and Lowestoft which all have centuries of connection with the sea and the world beyond. Exemplars of the great British seaside, they are thriving visitor destinations which continue to welcome millions of visitors each year. These towns are integral to the UK’s renewable energy industry and are also centres of fertile creativity, rich heritage and cultural distinctiveness. Beyond them, there is also a rich heritage and culture – both natural and man-made – from Aldeburgh and the Suffolk coast northwards to Winterton-on-Sea, coastal resorts and inland market towns, the Norfolk Broads and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Could this be Banksy’s way of endorsing the bid? So far none of the works have been authenticated but we will be keeping our eyes peeled!
