Is Banksy back? Another piece of graffiti appears on Reading bridge just weeks after the elusive artist sprayed a design on the walls of the town’s jail
- The drawing has appeared on Reading Bridge, which crosses the River Thames
- It is similar to the typewriter that features in Banksy drawing on Reading Prison
- Mural was vandalised earlier this week, with ‘Team Robbo’ daubed in red paint
Another Banksy-style piece of artwork has appeared in Reading after a previous mural was vandalised this week.
The drawing on Reading Bridge is similar to the typewriter that features in the Banksy drawing on Reading Prison that appeared earlier this month.
This mural was daubed with the words Team Robbo in red paint – thought to be a reference to the late street artist King Robbo, whom Banksy feuded with in the 1990s and early 2000s

Now, an almost identical drawing of the typewriter appeared overnight between Wednesday, March 17 and Thursday, March 18.
Banksy’s feud with King Robbo saw them go head to head by adding and removing elements from the other’s work.
It could well be the case the elusive Bristolian artist has returned to Reading to create a new piece of artwork.
Banksy has yet to confirm whether he has returned to the Berkshire town.
It could also be the case a copycat has carried out the work. The painting is on part of the bridge near Christchurch Meadows.
The artwork was spotted by a lady who lives nearby, who asked not to be named, during her morning walk along the Thames.
