New Banksy Mural Reflects on Brexit and EU Relations

At a time when the European Union is ostensibly falling apart, with France in the final throes of one of the most divisive election campaigns in modern times, tensions in Britain running hot over the inevitable execution of ‘Brexit’, and talks of Greece bowing out too, it was only a matter of time before the anonymous street artist, whose political / social commentary can been seen through their graffiti the world over, Banksy, weighed in on the whole saga. Located in Dover, England, the latest mural depicts an enormous EU flag, with a workman chipping away at one of the 12 stars, depicting a scene of disunity and uncertainty.

The mural comes just a couple of months after the secretive artist opened the Walled Off Hotel in Palestine, just 5 metres from the wall which separates the embattled Israeli / Palestinian border along the West Bank. The creative recluse confirmed it was their work via Instagram.
