READING’S very own Banksy has struck again after infiltrating the IKEA store in Calcot.

The artist known as Peachy, who has gained notoriety with his Banksy-esque designs across the town and the county, installed a number of smaller designs at the homeware store yesterday (October 9).

This came just days after the artist added new artwork taking aim at the Insulate Britain protesters in Bracknell last week.

Taking to IKEA, Peachy installed a piece featuring David Attenborough captioned ‘Time is up!”

The artist also added a hi-vis top with a cross through the IKEA logo, a frame with a baby holding a bag of money, and a piece titled ‘devolution’ which purports to show the regression of mankind.

Explaining the new artwork, Peachy told the Chronicle: “This was just a bit of fun to be fair.

“It’s a piece called ‘Devolution’, showing the process of humans going backwards... which we most certainly are.”

According to the artist, IKEA staff were quick to remove the pieces amid murmurs of customers realising they were in the presence of Peachy.

The street artist’s notoriety has risen over the past year with some eye-catching pieces.

In June Peachy painted a tribute to the three friends slain at Forbury Gardens by terrorist Khairi Saadallah.

The piece gained praise from friends and family of the victims.
