Just in time for Valentine's Day, renowned graffiti artist Banksy has owned up to a piece of artwork depicting a girl firing red flowers from a slingshot that mysteriously appeared on the side of a building in England Thursday morning.

The graffiti appeared on the side of a house in Barton Hill on Thursday.

In the spirit of February 14, it shows a little girl firing a catapult of red flowers, similar to the one in his famous "Balloon Girl" work.

The association's hopes were confirmed at midnight on Valentine's Day when two photos of the artwork were shared on Banksy's official Instagram account with no other caption.

He also posted an image of the new artwork to his website.

But the family has mulled covering up the artwork with glass to preserve it, as well as shared concerns over Storm Dennis approaching over the weekend. "Whoever painted, it's worth admiring their creativity".

Bristol-based blog She and Hem tweeted photographs of the street art, writing: "Is this a Banksy in Bristol?".

Banksy's last mural appeared in Birmingham in December, with residents elated the street artist chose their city for his next piece.

She said that despite a lot of debate on the authenticity of the mural, most people believed it was "100 percent" from the artist, with many calling the piece the "Valentine's Banksy".
