Kissing Coppers – Brighton

Kissing Coppers was originally unveiled on the wall of the Prince Albert Pub in Brighton in 2004.

The location of the work was a nod to the city's thriving LGBT community.

Due to consistent vandalism the owner of the Prince Albert had the design removed and transferred to canvas.

It was replaced with a replica in 2008.

The Mild Mild West – Bristol

The Mild Mild West, showing a Molotov cocktail-wielding teddy bear, was painted in broad daylight over three days in 1999.

Efforts from police to shut down unlicensed raves during the 1990s catalysed the work.

The Girl with the Pierced Eardrum – Bristol

This is Banksy's homage to Johannes Vermeer’s 1665 masterpiece Girl with a Pearl Earring.

The pearl earring has been replaced with an ADT alarm box.

The mural was in the news again when a giant face mask appeared on the painting in April 2020 at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Art Buff – Folkestone

Art Buff portrays a woman wearing headphones and staring at a plinth, upon which rests a patch of what seems to be a painted-out graffiti.

The name of the piece is a play on words, “buff” being a slang term for the painting over graffiti.

Reindeer mural – Birmingham

Banksy's reindeer mural appeared in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter in December 2019.

A protective screen was put up in front of the painting after red noses were painted on to the original.

Draw the Raised Bridge – Hull

Draw the Raised Bridge appeared on the disused Scott Street Bridge over the River Hull in January 2018.

Some have theorised that this work could refer to the “Siege of Hull” in 1642 when King Charles I was refused to enter Hull by Sir John Hotham and the Parliament.

Tesco sandcastle mural – St. Leonards-on-Sea

This 2010 mural appeared on the back of a staircase leading down to the beach in St. Leonards-on-Sea, East Sussex.

Banksy has used Tesco branding in several different artworks over the years, including on a picture of a petrol bomb in 2011.

It's claimed the artwork has led house prices to shoot up – with properties selling for up to three times more than they were previously valued at.

Designated Graffiti Area – London

Banksy's humourous Designated Graffiti Area is located in the courtyard of the nightclub Cargo on Rivington Street in Hackney.

Another of his works showing a dog with a bazooka called His Master's Voice is in the same place.

This mural, referring to Extinction Rebellion, appeared near Marble Arch in April 2019 after the protest group's camp on the site was cleared.

Snorting Copper – London

The mural of a police officer snorting cocaine first appeared on the side of a public toilet on Curtain Road in Hackney in 2005.

This artwork had been vandalised but has been brought back after a lengthy and tricky restoration, on the very same location, on Curtain Road at the Waterloo Station in London.
