After being named 2017's City of Culture, Hull recieved a little gift from one of Britain's most-famed modern artists. Locals were overjoyed at the addition to the raised drawbridge in the Wilcolmlee area, however a councillor for the area, John Abbott, claimed that Banksy's artwork didn't compare to 'real art' (whatever that is) and the piece should be cleaned off the already heavily graffiti'd bridge.
Unfortunately someone else agreed with the councillor and decided to whitewash the piece, causing serious uprawr in the community! Outraged at the vandalism, local window cleaner Jason Fanthorpe took it upon himself to try to restore the piece - and a good job he did too! The council then finally decided to protect the piece, covering it with perspex.
We've immortalised the artwork, depicting a young boy wearing a colander for a hat and wielding a sword with pencil attached, here on our Kids T-shirt along with the words 'Draw The Raised Bridge' in white.
