The artwork — a stencilled design showing a child holding a wooden sword with a pencil attached to the end — was glimpsed on an abandoned bridge in the city by residents on Thursday (January 25).
Despite speculation seeming to assume the world famous graffiti artist was responsible for the mural, it was only confirmed when images were shared on his official Instagram page on Friday.
The artwork — which is being praised by the world-famous graffiti artist’s legions of fans — comes accompanied by the words “Draw the raised bridge!”
Although it’s unknown what inspired this latest piece, many expressed the belief it could be related to Brexit following in similar footsteps to the mural he painted in Dover last May which depicted a workman removing a star from the European Union flag.
