A new piece of street art suspected of being by Banksy has appeared on a wall in Nottingham. The image depicts a young girl hula hooping with what looks like a bicycle wheel, and is situated next to a real bicycle with its back wheel missing. 

Whether or not this piece will make it into our list of the best street art from around the globe remains to be seen. According to the BBC, the work seems to have been created by the driver of a van with blacked out windows who pulled up by the spot near Ilkeston Road on Tuesday, but there has so far been no confirmation that it was made by Banksy. Banksy's Instagram account and website do not mention the artwork.
