A Banksy-style artist has taken to the streets of Berkshire and created Jubilee-themed artwork. Reading-based artist Peachy has become well known in the area as they continue to create graffiti across the county.
They were known to have created Banksy-like graffiti on the side of Reading Gaol which was removed less than 12 hours later. Banksy’s team confirmed that the artwork was not created by the anonymous artist.
Ahead of the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations, Peachy has been busy creating Jubilee artwork in Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. From Bracknell to Marlow, every room has been adorned with Union Jack streamers.

If you’re lucky enough to spot them, you might find the spray-painted queen with a baseball bat ready to swing, or even a gorilla relaxing in the grass. Each Jubilee piece has been signed with Peachy’s signature so you can be certain of the artwork that belongs to them.
The street artist has already created many works of art that people like to point out on social media. Peachy decided to create Jubilee artwork as people go “Jubilee crazy”. Speaking to BerkshireLive, they added “I’ve tried to keep the pieces in the context of the towns too so they don’t look too out of place. I hope they create something to talk about and give people some fun for a few minutes. As long as the people looking at the works are smiling and enjoying them, that’s all that matters.”
