Best of Banksy

Best of Banksy

Banksy, the man, the myth, the legend and the pseudonym of a British graffiti artist, political activist and painter visited Gaza to make a painting on the remains of a house that was probably destroyed by Israeli shelling during a 50-day war last summer. The anonymous British street artist has also posted a mini-documentary showing squalid conditions in Gaza six months after the end of the war between the enclave's Islamist Hamas rulers and Israel. And this new recent work from Banksy was for us a reason to make a Best of Banksy gallery. More of Banksy can also be seen in this older TCP Gallery.
