The news was discovered after a Bristol family member was tagged in a Facebook post, with Banksy later confirming the piece on his official Instagram account on Valentine's Day.

The graffiti shows a young girl in a headscarf, stencilled onto the side of a house in the Barton Hill area of Bristol with black and white paint.

Bristol Somali Community Association, based in Barton Hill, tweeted about the artwork after it was spotted.

"We've been down here all day and it's just been a complete buzz of excitement", she told the PA news agency.

"We hope it's Banksy's work", the group wrote in the post.

One person said: "I think it's lovely, it's got ivory and roses so you've got a mixture for Valentines Day". It's incredible and attractive'.

The Marsh Lane street sign also formed part of the artwork, adorned with some red flowers which have since gone missing, Woodruff said. "Whoever painted, it's worth admiring their creativity".

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

The mysterious artist confirmed the piece, which appears to be a girl firing flowers into the air, by posting photos on Instagram.

This piece joins Banksy's other array of famous graffiti pieces throughout Bristol, including The Mild Mild West, Gorilla in a Pink Mask and Well Hung Lover.
