Rumours have surfaced that Ed Sheeran could be Suffolk’s answer to famous street artist Banksy – but it’s been denied by his management.
The rumours come as an anonymous artist continues to donate works of art to charities and pubs across east Suffolk.
The artist, who calls themselves “The Hat” first made headlines in June, and has donated pieces to be auctioned for the NHS, Banham Zoo, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) and Home-Start. They have also donated a painting to TV presenter Bill Turnbull to raise money for prostate cancer charities.
Some believe The Hat could actually be Ed Sheeran, who took up painting after finishing his record-breaking Divide World Tour and makes art in a similar style – though this has reportedly been denied by his management.
Some of The Hat’s work is displayed at EACH’s Framlingham charity shop.

He also claims his work has been displayed at an exhibition in Amsterdam, although no further details regarding his identity have been revealed.
