Some fans of the street art have queried on social media as to whether famous graffiti artist Banksy could be behind the work.

Whoever it is, it’s caused a bit of a stir and some admiring comments.

Chris Dykes said on Facebook: “Wonderful piece of artwork. Love it.”

Julia Brooklyn said: “That’s brilliant, love well done graffiti.”

Lin Johnson asked: “Maybe the meaning has something to do with the planned Eden project?”

And Gloria Dunstan simply posted: “This is brilliant love it.”

It’s not the first time a Banksy-style mural has appeared in the town.

This appeared on the corner of Stanley Road and Cavendish Road in 2014.

And in 2012, these fish appeared on hoardings at Frontierland.
