Banksy and the Walthamstow cycle stands

Has Banksy passed through Walthamstow lately? This flower has blossomed on the crumbling wall of the Turkish supermarket at the western end of the High Street, by the cycle stands. The style is Banksy's, though I suspect it's the work of an imitator rather than the great man himself.

(Below) Empty as usual. Cyclists either aren't aware these stands exist (hidden from view of the High Street, round the corner by the car park), or they don't like using stands where a bike thief can get cutting with little chance of anyone walking past.
