banksy unveiled a new series of pieces in gaza, palestine earlier this week. the british street artist has four new pieces, and there were two quotes enclosed with the new stenciled images:
Gaza is often described as ‘the world’s largest open air prison’ because no-one is allowed to enter or leave. But that seems a bit unfair to prisons – they don’t have their electricity and drinking water cut off randomly almost everyday. — Banksy
A local man came up and said ‘Please – what does this mean?’ I explained I wanted to highlight the destruction in Gaza by posting photos on my website – but on the internet people only look at pictures of kittens. — Banksy
one of banksy’s new pieces is inspired by a sculpture of niobe, a greek mythological woman who’s children were killed out of spite.
