Banksy’s New Piece is a Brexit-Themed Mural and Reactions Are Mixed
A new Banksy piece popped up over the weekend and it’s already taking the internet by storm. A large mural on the side of a building on York Street near the A20 in Dover, England, the three-story high work is apparently (and quite obviously) targeting Brexit.
Showing a workman hammering away at a gold star on the European Union flag, it’s perfectly in line with the street artist‘s signature style as well as his usual take on culture, society, and (in this case) politics.
Art fans (and foes) certainly had plenty to say about the new piece…
