Street artist Banksy has left his mark again — this time on the wall of a school in the British city of Bristol.

Britain's BBC said Banksy had created the mural, showing a child with a stick chasing a burning tire, after Bridge Farm Primary named a school "house" — groups pupils are divided into — after him. It quoted the school's head teacher as saying the mural was "inspirational and aspirational" for pupils.

Banksy, whose identity has never been revealed, also left a note for pupils who discovered the work on Monday morning, saying "it's always easier to get forgiveness than permission."
