Banksy Takes on Syrian Refugee Crisis with New Steve Jobs Artwork

Banksy2Banksy3

“The Jungle” is a refugee camp in the French port city of Calais, the primary crossing point between England and France. It’s here that Banksy has revealed new artwork depicting the late Steve Jobs, founder of Apple and, as his piece highlights, the son of a Syrian migrant. The image is one in a series intended to change people’s misconceptions about the thousands of refugees living in the area. Infrastructure from Banksy’s recent “bemusement” park, Dismaland (previously posted about here), is also being used to help create emergency housing for migrants living in Calais. More images from “the Jungle” below.
