More street art has appeared on buildings in St Austell but the artist STILL remains a mystery.

Pirate FM told you about the drawings of cats, a bird and a bi-plane, first spotted back in May.

The art caught locals' attention because if looks a bit like the work of the infamous Banksy!

Now more pictures have been shared on the St Austell Friends Facebook page, this time outside a pub.

More street art, that looks a bit like the infamous Banksy's work, has appeared on buildings in St Austell

Sara Gibson captured these photos of cat, painted on the wall of the town's Seven Stars Inn.

"I think it's a fantastic opportunity to paint the town in a more positive light.

She added: "The mystery of who the artist is should stay exactly that - a mystery".

So far we know about cats, a bird and even this bi-plane spotted by James Mustoe on the old Methodist Church on Trevarthian Road.

The big question; is it Banksy?

Some locals were pretty convinced and had even named the mystery artist 'StAnksy'

Benjamin shared his theory on the group's page when the art was first spotted back in May

"Massive Attack are playing Eden in couple of weeks and it's often been speculated that 3D, one of the band members is actually Banksy.

"It would make sense he would have been in the St Austell area beforehand to see the venue etc... that picture in the link above is even more Banksy".

What do you reckon? Do you know who is behind it? Let us know at the link below!
