Elementary school students at Bridge Farm Primary School in Bristol, England recently voted to rename one of their houses after Banksy (previously featured here). While they were away from school on a short holiday break the famously elusive street artist surprised them by painting this playful mural on his namesake building. He also wrote them a pretty great thank you note:

“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.”
