Watch as Nottingham design company brings Banksys hula hoop girl to life – Nottinghamshire Live

A design company based in Nottingham has added movement to a piece of street art claimed by Banksy.

The ‘hula hoop girl’ appeared on a red brick wall just off Ilkeston Road, Nottingham, last week and has since sparked wide interest – and scepticism – in Nottingham and beyond.

In another display of creativity, award-winning animation, video and motion graphics company, Bottletop, have worked their magic to add movement to the painting of the little girl.

The company, which is based at the Antenna Media Centre in the city, tweeted: “We added a little bit of movement to the new Banksy in Nottingham.”

It was also shared to their Facebook and Instagram pages.

The 2-D image now looks incredibly life-like as the bicycle tyre spins around the girl while her hair flows behind her.

It also shows the chained up bike in the foreground with its seat, which has since gone missing.

The artwork was first spotted on Thursday morning (October 15) and has since been claimed by both Birmingham artist, Itchers, and later by the famous Banksy, who posted it to his Instagram on Saturday morning.

Residents and businesses in the area reacted with joy as hundreds flocked to see the piece.

Speaking to Nottinghamshire Live, Itchers has stood by his claims the work is his, and says he ‘wants answers’ on why Banksy is taking credit.
