Banksy “The Miserables” in London, UK

After Dismaland and a few recent pieces in France, Banksy is finally back in London, UK where he just unveiled this brand new piece which shows Cosette from “The Miserables”.

The elusive British street artist just painted this brilliant artwork on the French embassy in London and criticizes the recent use of teargas in Calais Jungle refugee camp located in France.

The Calais jungle is the nickname given to a migrant encampment in the vicinity of Calais, France, where migrants live while they attempt to enter the United Kingdom. The migrants, who frequently stow away on lorries, ferries, cars, or trains travelling through the Port of Calais or the Eurotunnel terminus, are a mixture of refugees, asylum seekers and economic migrants.
“The Miserables” a book by Victor Hugo is considered one of the greatest novels of the 19th century. The novel elaborates upon the history of France, the architecture and urban design of Paris, politics, moral philosophy, antimonarchism, justice, religion, and the types and nature of romantic and familial love.
The piece comes with a QR code which links to a video that can be seen below.

Banksy creates new pieces in Calais, France

After Dismaland, Banksy continues to hightlight the migrant crisis and horrific living conditions of Syrian refugiees in the Jungle of Calais by painting a portrait of Steve Jobs, reminding us that he is the son of a Syrian migrant. Steve Jobs is depicted carrying a travel bag with his iconic mac computer. Additional murals and messages have been painted in the camp and the city center of Calais.

The others pieces are showing a stenciled young girl and her telescope, a text piece which reads “Maybe This Whole Situation Will Sort Itself Out” and a piece showing a refugee raft inspired from the “The Raft of the Medusa” by Géricault and dubbed “Maybe We Are Not All In The Same Boat”. On a side note, this is the first ever time Banksy paints in France.Read More »Banksy creates new pieces in Calais, France
