Shop owner asks for graffiti art

WESTON'S own would-be Banksy has sprayed his latest work onto the side of a florist - after its owner said the art could prevent 'nasty graffiti'.
Street artist JPS, who has previously sprayed several surfaces in the town, put the latest piece, showing a man dispersing a crowd with a shockwave, onto the side of Vanda Flowers in Milton Road.
Its owner, Julia Horton, gave the artist permission to create the piece in a bid to prevent vandalism. She said “It think it’s art, rather than those stupid squiggles. You should encourage any artistic talent. It’s amazing what can be done with a can of spray paint.
“The wall often gets nasty graffiti and stupid squiggles. He did something on the wall before that was covered in nasty graffiti. Hopefully it won’t get vandalised now.”
