Is This a Banksy?



Living in Bristol, Banksy's hometown and therefore quite used to seeing Graffiti like this, I was quite surprised to see this on the side of a house in Brixham, Devon.
He went to the same school my children went to (many years before they did, I might add!) and my husband teaches at.
I can't tell you his name because I don't know. 
There are a few other Banksy-esque graffiti pictures around Brixham and I don't know who did them.


What do you think? 
Is it or isn't it?
:)

PS. I'm sorry those of you who aren't familar with his work! I found this link here if that explains in detail how he rose to fame in the UK. To sum it up, his graffiti sells for the same price as a house these days!

I'm not familiar with what you're speaking of but quite interesting piece to place on the side of any building! :)

I've linked his name now so if you click on it you'll go to the web-page.
I've since been looking online and found out it's not actually his work but someone who obviously likes what he does! :)

This master of marketing has been busy betting on the horses and having fun around Bath (as far as I know). I would guess this is an admirer, but well spotted.

Yes I think so too Bella, after looking online reminding myself of the quality of his drawing I think this is someone else. :)
