Owner of Bizarre Bizarre on Regent Street, Beverley Rice, found the artwork designed by mysterious artist Emo on the side alley of her shop.

She said: “I really like it and think it’s a clever way to use that wasteland area.

The artwork is thought to be a take on street artist Banksy's painting 'Washing Zebra Stripes'. Picture: Beverley RiceThe artwork is thought to be a take on street artist Banksy's painting 'Washing Zebra Stripes'. Picture: Beverley Rice

“Great Yarmouth Borough Council should look to use graffiti artists more to make the town look nicer.”

She added: “Emo is more than welcome to come back and paint some more artwork. Our customers think it’s really good.”

The artwork is thought to be a take on street artist, Banksy’s painting ‘Washing Zebra Stripes’.

Emo’s last painting was found on a garage in Euston Road, Great Yarmouth, at the end of July and was of a little girl on a swing.
