The rumor is true. The elusive self-dubbed “art terrorist” Banksy Nick Walker rolled into NYC and decorated the Sullivan St. facing wall of restaurant Thunder Jackson located on Bleeker in the West Village last night. In addition to three characters of a man walking with an umbrella, he also added a nice drippy “Vandal” and finished it off with his signature “B”NW at the bottom. A waitress from Jackson’s confirmed that it was indeed Banksy, mentioning that he’s friends with one of the guys involved with the bar. She also noted that he was originally scheduled to paint the wall on Wednesday night but someone stole a bunch of his supplies. More photos and some physical evidence after the jump.

UPDATE: It’s a Nick Walker piece.
