Banksy graffit on Israel's security wall

The British “guerrilla graffiti” artist Banksy has created a series of graffiti on the security wall that Israel is building through the West Bank – often through the midst of Palestinian communities. The images of freedom and long views he has created subtly highlight the the way the wall in fact restricts movement and sightlines for Palestinians.

He also concedes that the enormous height and length of the wall “makes it the ultimate activity holiday destination for graffiti writers.”
