Banksy has been on vacation.
The famed British street artist confirmed Friday that he was behind a series of murals that have appeared in eastern English seaside towns in recent weeks.
A 3-minute video released on his Instagram feed — titled “A Great British Spraycation” and set to a reworked version of Tones And I’s 2019 hit song “Dance Monkey” ― showed the pieces being painted by a campervan-driving figure in Great Yarmouth, Gorleston, Cromer, Lowestoft, and Oulton Broad.
They included a gigantic gull swooping down on a dumpster, a child making a sandcastle over broken paving and a couple dancing to an accordion player atop a bus stop. The artist also added a miniature stable to the Merrivale Model Village in Great Yarmouth.
But of one piece, a woman in the Banksy-produced clip appears to say it looks like “mindless vandalism.”
The video concludes with another woman commenting, “It looks a lot better from far away than it does when you get this close.”
