A Banksy-esque piece of artwork has appeared in a Falmouth ope.

The graffiti, which somewhat resembles the infamous artist's stenciled style, depicts musician Richard James from Lanner – better known as Aphex Twin.

It was spotted in the ope between Barnado's and the nail salon on Market Strand.

Despite resembling Banksy's work, the man behind the Falmouth piece is thought to be a fellow Bristolian and street artist who goes by the moniker Stewy's Stencils.

Another version of the piece was sprayed on a building in Gwithian in the last few weeks, and another was seen in Stoke Newington.

A stencilled fox also appeared on a building in Quay Hill several months ago, matching Stewy's style.

The London-based artist's graffiti can be seen on walls across the country, from Cornwall to Manchester, and more of his work can be seen here.
