The mural of a child holding a pink flare on a building in Venice is another Banksy creation, the graffiti artist's publicist has confirmed.

A photograph of the mural was also posted on Banksy's Instagram account on Friday and received over 400,000 likes within one hour.

It shows a young child purporting to be wearing a life-jacket holding high a flare that is streaming pink smoke.

This is the second piece of art by the British street artist to appear in the northeastern Italian city known for its canals in one week.
