Banksy's latest piece has appeared in Vyse Street in Birmingham, UK, and as per usual, the anonymous street artist's work is already causing a stir. The artwork shows two reindeer painted on a wall next to an existing bench, giving the impression that it's pulling the bench like a sleigh. The bench is occupied by a homeless man, who happens to be sporting a big white beard. Does that remind you of anyone?

But, is it a genuine Banksy, and potentially worthy of inclusion in our top street art post? The style is right and the artwork has made an appearance on the artist's Instagram page with a poignant message. Read Banksy's words and watch the video below.
