Famous street artist Banksy has painted a new mural on the wall of a house in north London, UK, which, according to fans of the artist's work, draws attention to the importance of nature.

The picture is located on the wall behind a pruned tree and creates the effect of its crown of green paint, and it also depicts a man with a spray gun, the BBC reports.

It is noted that the mural appeared on Hornsey Road in Finsbury Park in the middle of social housing and in one of the poorest parts of the district.

Banksy has already confirmed the painting's authorship on Instagram.

"It [the film] uses the right techniques, it definitely has an easy-to-understand message, it's very well placed, and it really resonates as soon as you see it. The message is clear," said documentary filmmaker James Peake, "Nature is struggling and it's up to us to help it recover. When you step back, it seems that the tree comes to life, but in a noticeably fake and synthetic way. It's springtime, and this tree should be blooming with leaves, but Banksy must have been driving by and thought how pathetic it looked."

Radio presenter Sally Flatman shared that for her, the painting shows the value of green spaces and the need to increase their number.

The article said that local residents liked the painting, but some people fear that it will significantly increase rents.

In 2018 Banksy created an environmental mural in Port Talbot, South Wales, UK. On the corner of the garage, a child is depicted catching snowflakes with his mouth, but on the other hand, it is clear that the snow is actually ash from burning garbage.

As EcoPolitic previously reported, in Kyiv's Shevchenkivskyi district, a mural "Family for a Four-legged Friend" was unveiled on the facade of a house at 23 Zolotoustivska Street, depicting animal volunteer Anastasia Tykhova, who rescued dogs with disabilities from Irpin at the beginning of the full-scale invasion.
