A wannabe Banksy mural has mysteriously appeared on a Beckenham home.

A silhouette of a woman being lifted into the air by three balloons has been painted onto the side of a house in Birkbeck Road.

Local Sarah Damerum, who spotted the painting, is keen to track down the artist as she would like one painted on her own home.

She said: “I saw this while I was waiting for my dad who was in the house clearance shop on the corner.

“I’m thinking it’s a wannabe Banksy but I would love to have one on my own house.”

Banksy is the pseudonym for a UK-based street artist who is known for his satirical work on public buildings.

A new Banksy mural in Clacton-on-Sea depicting pigeons holding anti-immigration placards was destroyed by a council this week after someone complained it was "racist”.
