A NEW piece of work has popped up in Winchester city centre from street artist Hendog.

The anonymous artist has produced a new mural featuring a young girl picking petals of a flower in Market Street.

Hendog is behind a collection of stunning murals across Winchester including the mural of Big Issue seller Kev Collick at the bus station, a boy outside the Community Food Pantry, a nurse and a boy outside Royal Hampshire County Hospital and a boy flying a kite near to The Handlebar Cafe.

He is also behind the Lego boy piece in St Thomas Street and a mural at The Railway Inn in Winchester to commemorate the life of Simon 'Denn' Goodwin.

Over the summer, he produced nine murals across the county, each created to "say thank you or to spread awareness", including a boy on the side of The Shack at Hill Head, a boy blowing bubbles at Places Leisure Centre in Eastleigh and a turtle at Royal Victoria Country Park near Southampton.

People have compared his work to the mysterious street artist Banksy, although there is no connection.

Winchester residents have been largely welcoming of his contributions to the city.

City residents Val and Terry Wilson were admiring the new work last Friday.

Val said: "I think it is very pretty, whoever is behind it is obviously very talented. It's marvellous."
