Anonymous Bristol-based artist Banksy has recently taken a trip to Palestine, where he created a series of new pieces, that can be seen in this short political video titled "Make this the year YOU discover a new destination", made available on his 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."
"Gaza is often described as 'the world's largest open air prison' because no-one is allowed to enter or leave. But that seems a bit unfair to prisons - they don’t have their electricity and drinking water cut off randomly almost everyday."
