New Kissing Coppers in Brighton not a Banksy
Representatives for Bristolian street artist Banksy have revealed the new Kissing Coppers is a fake.
The artwork appeared on the side of the old Astoria Theatre in Brighton on April Fools Day – three days after same sex marriage was legalised in the UK.
City gallery owners said it looked authentic, but The Argus can now confirm the Kissing Coppers no 2 is not a Banksy original.
The original Banksy mural fetched $575,000 (£345,000) at a US auction in February.
