Hastings + St Leonards has been visited by the infamous Banksy!!!!
The 'graffiti' appeared in the last 2 weeks.......what was he doing here??....maybe he just decided on a day trip to the seaside.
But how brilliant is this......painted on the side of a set of steps leading to the beach.
Councillor Jay Kramer, deputy leader of Hastings Council, said: "I think this is great! I know that we have a zero tolerance policy on graffiti, and that is absolutely right. However, we have to be flexible so on this occasion I have agreed that Banksy can be an exception to our rule, and can stay. Hastings has a reputation for its art, its edginess, and for being a bit bohemian. We have some great home-grown talent here in Hastings, and it's fantastic that an artist like Banksy, with his international reputation, has recognised that Hastings is worth visiting. And how appropriate that it has appeared at the start of our Coastal Currents Arts Festival."
Yay to that.
