A mural sporting Banksy's alleged signature in a declining town in northwestern Spain that had caused a sensation when it appeared overnight in April is not by the legendary street artist, his website said Friday.The cheeky, stenciled image of two Guardia Civil police kissing had appeared on a white wall that had been "reserved for Banksy" in Ferrol, where a street art festival set up in 2008 to breathe new life into a dying neighborhood takes place every year.At the time, Spanish media was rife with speculation as to whether the image, which strongly resembles one of the artist's most famous images portraying two British cops kissing, was actually his.But as the annual festival kicked off Friday, AFP sent an email to Banksy's official website banksy.co.uk asking whether it was indeed his.The festival was created by Eduardo Hermida in 2008, who decided to get fellow artists to plaster walls and even doors in the district of Canido with their versions of Diego Velazquez's famed 17th century "Las Meninas" painting.
