Dunfermline might have its own answer to legendary graffiti artist Banksy.
For months art work has been popping up on buildings and bins, adding a colourful twist to the Auld Grey Toun.
The latest had staff in a spin at the Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum.
Overnight a portrait of the philanthropist and steel magnate appeared on a boarded up part of the exterior wall which is awaiting repair work.
Staff took to social media to track down the elusive person responsible and it can be revealed it is self-taught artist Jack Paton.
Originally from High Valleyfield, the 51-year-old now lives in the town, and has been on a one-man crusade to bring light and colour into the lives of inhabitants, much like Carnegie himself, whose mission was to “bring sweetness and light to the toiling masses”.
Annie Leverton, a visitor services officer at the Moodie Street tourist attraction, said staff were intrigued when the poster was spotted.
“We all thought it was really nice, and thought we recognised it from some of the other art which has been appearing over town.”
Their suspicions were confirmed and the artist was revealed as Jack, who has been installing around 20 creations across town in the last eight months.
He creates his art, using waterproof acrylics, on recycled “canvasses”, ensuring they are able to be installed and removed without damaging their surroundings.
He said his dream was to start something permanent in Dunfermline where children could start to create artwork, to eventually replace his.
He cites Waterford Walls, a street art festival transforming the Irish city into an open air gallery, as an inspiration.
“It shows what can be done if done properly and it’s now in the top 100 tourist events in Ireland,” he added.
Closer to home, Jack was delighted by the interest shown in a little local boy looking at his art – of a cute dog – on a waste bin.
“He probably wouldn’t have looked at a king, but what was nice was that wee dog stopped the kid in his tracks.”
Jack, who intends to carry on his street art, does have something in common with the elusive Banksy, hanging his creations in the dark streets of Dunfermline in the dead of night.
“I find it quite narcissistic for people to see me putting them up, so I do it at 4am or 5am.”
