Banksy artwork in Birmingham preserved following vandalism

A new Banksy artwork includes a homeless man sleeping on a Birmingham bench

Street musician Banksy made a mural final week-end at a workbench in Birmingham where in actuality the homeless Ryan rests.

The video shows a man he calls Ryan settling down to sleep on a bench, which appears to be "pulled" by two reindeer painted on a brick wall.

To announce the artwork, Banksy posted a video on Instagram of a homeless man named Ryan lying on the bench and wrote: "God bless Birmingham".

With over 4,500 people sleeping rough over the United Kingdom, many people have praised Banksy for drawing attention to the issue, especially with temperatures already dropping extremely low this winter.

"A young guy just jumped over the barriers and sprayed two noses on it, which is inaccurate to start with as only Rudolph has a red nose".

The piece, which appeared in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter over the weekend, was vandalised yesterday within hours of its Instagram unveiling.

A spokesman for Banksy confirmed the red noses had not been added by the artist.

It meant the Jewelry Quarter Enterprise Enchancment District (BID) was compelled to make use of 24 hour safety in a single day to guard the artwork from additional vandalism.

The Bristol-born artist, who keeps his identity a secret, is known for his political and social-commentary graffiti work that has popped up in cities around the world.

"He was asking the crowds whether he should do it and people were begging him saying, "Please don't do it, please don't do it".

Crane added that "It's obviously about giving at a time of need for the homelessness that we have in these areas, and it's something that we've been working in partnership with the council and other organizations to try and tackle, so it's great to see it in our area".

"It is a powerful bit of art and I know homelessness is a major issue in Birmingham".

He mentioned: 'I noticed a small tent with a pair lads in high-vis vests early within the morning on Friday. Then I saw it. "We weren't sure what it was at first or who did it but we had a good idea".
