A piece of street art showing a young girl firing a slingshot of flowers at a building in Bristol is by Banksy, the elusive artist has confirmed.

Residents in the Barton Hill area of the city awoke on Thursday to find the striking piece on the side of a building.

The artwork, in Marsh Lane, features a stencilled image of a girl firing a slingshot of red flowers and leaves.

Banksy confirmed the piece by posting two images of it on his official Instagram account and website in the early hours ofValentines Day.

The artwork appeared on a rented home owned by Edwin Simons, who celebrated his 67th birthday on Thursday.

His daughter, Kelly Woodruff, 37, found out about it after being tagged in a Facebook post.

Weve been down here all day and its just been a complete buzz of excitement, she told the PA news agency.

Theres so many people coming and enjoying it, taking pictures, its fantastic.

Theres been a lot of debate if it is a Banksy or not. Most people Ive spoken to think it 100% is, and theyre naming it theValentines Banksy.

Its incredible and beautiful.

The family are looking to cover up the artwork with glass to preserve it.

My slight worry is, weve got this Storm Dennis coming on the weekend, so I really want to try and protect the roses, she added.

News of the Banksy first emerged on Twitter, with Bristol Somali Community Association writing: Today in Barton Hill, we woke up with this remarkable mural art painted on one of the houses of the area.

We hope its Banksys work. Come and have a look yourself. Whoever painted, its worth admiring their creativity. Thank you.

One local resident, James Bullock, saw scaffolding on the wall at about 6.20am on Thursday.

He walked past it later with his girlfriend and was stunned to see the artwork had appeared.
