World famous street artist Banksy has confirmed an image painted on a wall in Lenton is his own creation.
The illusive artist confirmed the news with a post on his official Instagram page on Saturday morning, October 17.
The work first came to attention on on a wall off Ilkeston Road in Nottingham on Thursday, October 15, and depicts a child hula-hooping with the missing tyre of a nearby bike.
Speculation mounted earlier this week that is was made by the artist and Nottingham City Council installed a perspex screen next to it, though experts were not convinced it was a genuine Banksy.
Earlier today a fellow street artist from Birmingham, Itchers, had laid claim to the work.
Banksy confirms works are his only by posting on his Instagram page.
