The Ukrainian city of Simferopol, on the Black sea, recently spotted over 20 Banksy-style graffiti murals. Banksy is the pseudonym of a prolific British graffiti artist, political activist and painter, whose identity is unconfirmed. According to the UK art dealer who vacationed in Simferopol and who sold some of the Banksy’s original art works, the Ukrainian graffiti looks “very, very Banksy.”
The Simferopol’s graffiti is signed with “Sharik” (Little Ball), and the artist’s identity is unknown. Tourists who flock this popular summer resort city say that they enjoy the paintings and hope that the locals will preserve them.
