Is this the work of Gloucester's own Banksy? Or the real deal himself?

An image of an armchair and a footstool has been discovered on top of the NCP car park above the Eastgate Shopping Centre.

The artwork was found by photographer Will Barnes, 24, from Churchdown, last week while he was undertaking a personal project called Fresh Glass.

The discovery comes just weeks after an image of the Cat in the Hat was found high up in the Oxebode above the Edinburgh Woollen Mill.

Mr Barnes said: "Regarding the Cat in the Hat artist, I am not sure if it's him, it doesn't seem to fit his style.

"I took the photo while wanting to take a photo from above the city, from on top of a building. I used the NCP car park above the Eastgate Shopping Centre and noticed this piece of graffiti while scouting out a shot."

He added: "The project I am working on is a way for me to express and document the things that catch my eye when walking around towns and cities, it started not that long ago while walking around Cheltenham and realising there are a lot of details of the town that probably go a miss."

    You are joking! That has been there for ages, probably over a year.

    A close up would be useful, and while it isn't Banksy, we discourage folk with genuine artistic talent at our peril. Remember the guy with the tash who Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna turned down in 1907-8 and think on!
