He has been teasing his fans and the authorities with a new post every day on his website photographing his latest gift to the city.  The artworks have received different responses from the people and the authorities. Many people appreciated Banksy’s contribute to the city while the authorities were worried about the art attack.

Children and even adults posed for photos interacting with the art installations before they are worn out. Many even went on to guard the artwork. A building owner hired security guards and installed a metal gate to protect an artwork painted on their building “so it can be viewed and enjoyed”.
