A BANKSY-inspired piece of artwork has been discovered at the Weymouth Park and Ride site.
The painting, features a small white rabbit with the slogan ‘Council tags’ above it.
Forty-six-year-old Weymouth bus driver Paul Carrera recently found the graffiti on the driver’s rest room door of the Park and Ride site.
He said the art is quite unusual but caught his eye while at work, and that other bus drivers have been talking about the mystery art.
He said: “It would be great if it was a Banksy, and would really put Weymouth on the map.
“Other bus drivers have been mentioning it to me for about a week and I quite like the design, it’s very unusual.
“If anyone can shed some light on the graffiti I’d love to know who made it.”
Another graffiti painting, featuring a figure holding paint pots containing the slogan ‘money makes the world go wrong’, has recently appeared on the bridge at Littlemooor Road overlooking the Weymouth Relief Road.
British street artist Banksy most recently finished a month’s residency in New York, during which he sold canvases from a stall in Central Park for £38 each.
Many of the pieces were estimated to be worth up to £20,000 each.
