Banksy’s signature stencilled style graffiti, and sculptural pieces are displayed in Lowestoft, Gorleston, Oulton Broad, Cromer, and Great Yarmouth. The artwork depicts everything from a giant seagull pecking diving into a skip, to a crowd of people dancing on the top of a bus stop, to his trademark rat reclining on a deck chair.

The work reveals the often-playful nature of Banksy’s work with its surrounding area whilst also denoting social, economic and social issues through its undertones.

The artwork was well received by the public for the most part, with Banksy’s comment section full of praise.
