Crapsy - the nom de pinceau of Dorset's self-styled Banksy imitator Aro Sol - has stuck again.
Residents of Poyntington's Manor Estate awoke this morning to find a giant painting adorning the wall of the approach road to the former GWR's Poyntington 7 foot Broad-guage Bogie Repair Workshop. It had appeared overnight in the manner now familiar to Crapsy's several admirers. "You have to hand it to him" say fans Todd and Skye Witless, "he captures his subject whoever he or she is with an uncanny sense of their inner spirit. He's spiritual in the real sense of the word - like he gets it spiritually." Asked if they thought Crapsy had completely captured the spirit of Professor Thrupiece in all its infamous complexity, the couple were at a loss for words: "who's Professor Thrupiece?" they finally asked. "I told them it was Bomber Harris", Todd's grandfather explained "and they'd no blxxdy idea who he was either."
Noleg Tostandon - spokesperson for Dorset Education Services - declined to comment on the state of youth education in the county but did shout a prepared statement from a third floor window of Jeremy Corbin House: "It's no use blaming the teachers. It's not their fault. They know nothing either - ignorance was all the rage in the 80s and now we are reaping what the fascist Tories sewed. I blame Theresa May - it was her took away the milk and invaded Poland. It's never been right since." Ms Tostandon has a First Class Degree from Brasenose College, Oxford where she read PPS. She was on the losing Brasenose side in the first round of the 2011University Challenge Series [BRASENOSE COLLEGE OXFORD -5 | UNIVERSITY OF BRADFORD PEVERELL 240].
Meanwhile back in Poyntington, Crapsy's work is attracting visitors. A local resident who wished to remain anonymous said: "We had one this morning, two at dinner time and one's supposed to be coming at tea time but you can't be sure. These things have a life span don't they? Usually about 5 minutes I reckon."
According to his several admirers, Crapsy's work captures his subject with an uncanny sense of their inner spirit but opinion remains divided on whether it's art, graffiti or just crap.
