A new work by the mysterious street artist Banksy has emerged in London.

The artist shared the mural in Finsbury Park on his official Instagram account on Monday, proving that it is his own. 

In the mural, green paint is sprayed on the wall behind a felled tree to create the illusion of greenery, with a stencil of a person holding a pressure hose.

As crowds gathered to see the mural, residents said they were "proud" that their street had been chosen.

The artist, who usually confirms his work on his website and social media, posted photos of the work on Instagram on Monday without any caption.Soksq
