Banksy Confirms “Hula” Piece on Nottingham Salon
Earlier this week a new piece popped up on the wall of a salon in Nottingham, England featuring a girl hula-hooping with a bike tire behind a bicycle missing it’s rear wheel. It bore a striking resemblance to Banksy’s work. After some public debate on the its authenticity, the elusive artist took credit for “Hula” this morning. A local shopkeeper gave the BBC the below account of how it transpired.
Alex Mitchell, 31, said: “I only saw the driver. I didn’t know what was going on or whether I should call the police.
“He pretended like he had broken down but he was there for at least two hours.”
Mr Mitchell said at one point the man came in and bought two Ribenas.
He said a piece of cardboard was left “gaffa taped to the wall” and when he returned the next day, the same person was there again.
“I asked him ‘who is the artist’ and he just winked at me,” he said.
“I’m not going to say whether it is Banksy or not, it definitely looks like one but no-one saw who painted it.”
“Maybe he was just passing through.”
Banksy does it with style again and again.

Solo Skate Mag Releases Matheus Du Bronks “Labirinto” Part
Matheus Du Bronks delivered an impressive part in “Labirinto”, an independent full-length video project by Bruno Rocha.
Filmed for almost 5 years and in 8 countries, “Labirinto” also features Akira Utida, André Saide, Bruno Prado, Claudio Junio, Felipe De Carvalho, Gustavo Dos Anjos, Leonardo Favaro, Lucas Marques, Mauricio Carvalho/Patrick Vidal, Simone Terzi, and Tallys Junior.
The rest of the parts will be released on various skateboard channels.
Here’s what Bruno says about the video:
“More than a traditional full-length skate video the idea was to bring up moments of questioning and reflection about themes from existentialism to racism, through a collection of audio, animations, texts, and also some easter eggs hidden in the course of the video. The idea appeared in my mind in 2016 while I was studying the myth of ”Cretan Labyrinth”, that summed up tells the story about a labyrinth created in order to hide the negative side effect/s of King Minos greediness/greed. By applying the ideology of the myth to our current times, I still see ourselves trapped in a Labyrinth that keeps hiding from us the greed of this capitalistic world around us, leaving us lost in endless paths and taking us away from harmony, equality and love towards the other.”
