The latest offering from alluring British artist, Banksy, above, starts out as a seemingly positive tourist showcase video. The 2 minute clip then turns bleak with gripping imagery of the current issues being faced in the country of Gaza.
One composition was made on the wall of a building in Gaza and features the greek goddess Niobe crying, above. Another work Banksy contrived in Gaza is this painting of a kitten on a demolished wall playing with rubble that looks like a ball of yarn, directly above.
Said of the project via his official website, “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.”
