You'd think after being named 2017's City of Culture, the local councillors of Hull would be a little more excited about gaining a brand new piece of art from one of the UK's most popular and well-known modern artists - however, this was not the case! Councillor 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 graffiti'd bridge.
Unfortunately someone else agreed and decided to whitewash the piece, causing serious uprawr in the community! Deeming this a total outrage, local window cleaner Jason Fanthorpe took it upon himself to try to restore the piece - and a good job he did too! The council 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 Premium Women's T-shirt along with the words 'Draw The Raised Bridge' in white.
