A graffiti attributed to secretive British artist Banksy depicting a child wielding a machine gun, in black and white surrounded by colored flowers, is spotted in Westwood, California on February 17, 2011. Another graffiti was ripped down Wednesday, February 16th in Hollywood, amid sightings of other pieces in a reported pre-Oscars publicity stunt. Banksy is nominated for best documentary for 'Exit Through the Gift Shop' at the Oscars, due to be announced on February 27th at the climax of Tinseltown's annual awards season.
