The elusive British artist Banksy is back in the UK where he just unveiled a brand new piece in his hometown of Bristol.

This pretty rad piece entitled “Forgiveness Is Easier To Get Than Permission” appeared overnight  on the wall of Bridge Farm Primary School to thank it for naming a house after him. Banksy also sent a letter which reads :

“Dear Bridge Farm School, thanks for your letter and naming a house after me.

“Please have a picture, and if you don’t like it, feel free to add stuff.

“I’m sure the teachers won’t mind. Remember, it’s always easier to get forgiveness than permission.

“Much love, Banksy.”

The piece will now live for many years to come and hopefully inspire many kids from the neighborhood.

Take a look at a few more shots after the break and then make sure to let us know your thoughts down in our comments section.
