Is this parking attendant at Dismaland, right, actually the artist Banksy, thought to be shown in the picture at left?

Eagle-eyed observers have discerned a similarity between the man featured in the photo above that purportedly shows the British maverick and a man working as a parking attendant at the ironic theme park in the English resort town of Weston-Super-Mare, according to a report in the Daily Mail.
In 2008, the Daily Mail released an image of Robin Gunningham, from Bristol, who Banksy fans suspect is the mystery artist. A single photograph supposedly showing him in sunglasses with tousled hair was taken in Jamaica in 2004.
Gunningham is 38. The parking attendant looks to our eye like a man about 10 years older than that, but there is a striking similarity to the men’s noses.
The two men are even wearing similar sunglasses.
