Banksy, Britain’s most famous street artist, on Friday confirmed what many had already suspected - that he is indeed the author of a number of works that have appeared recently in British seaside towns.

班克西,英國最有名的街頭藝術家,在週五證實許多人已經懷疑的事:他確實是最近在英國海濱城鎮出現的一些作品的作者。

An Instagram video clip, just over three minutes long and entitled "A Great British Spraycation", shows the elusive artist taking a summer road trip in a beat-up camper van with cans of spray paint stashed in a cooler.

Instagram上一段3分多鐘長、名為「一場精彩的英國噴漆渡假」影片顯示,這名神出鬼沒的藝術家,搭著一部破舊的露營車進行一場夏季公路旅行,保冰箱裡堆了多罐噴漆。
