Latest Banksy art: Photos and location of new Islington tree mural by anonymous artist

A Finsbury Park building has drawn crowds after it became the canvas for a new Banksy artwork.

Anonymous street artist Banksy is confirmed to be behind a new tree mural which has appeared on a building near Finsbury Park

On Sunday (March 17) residents in Hornsey Road, Islington, woke up to a green-themed artwork on their doorstep

The new mural features paint splatters up a wall which was the backdrop to a pared back tree. A person is stencilled holding a pressure hose with drips of the same green paint.

When looking at the artwork at a distance, the added greenery gives the nearby bare tree the look of foliage as the splatters mimic the form of the branches.

Locals soon linked Banksy to the artwork. Sharing pictures X, one user wrote: “Banksy came overnight and now my rent will skyrocket.”

Another added: “Proud new caretakers of an apparent new #Banksy piece in Finsbury Park… Woke up this morning to it on the side of flat.”

The elusive artist has since confirmed the new artwork was their work on Instagram, posting three photos showing the before and after shots of the work.

The latest London artwork comes after Banksy's stop sign piece in December, which the artist stencilled three military drones across. It was removed just an hour after Banksy claimed it.
