Banksy Attacks Paris’ Walls With Six New Works Criticizing The French Government

Published 11 months ago

By now, Banksy has got to be one of the most well-known street artists in the world. This elusive artist is best known for his snark political commentary on how the government treats the working class, expressed through stencil art. This time, over the course of the Paris Fashion Week, Banksy hit the French capital with six new works.

The first one is a girl painting over a swastika with a pink Victorian pattern, which is a reference to the artist’s 2008 piece called “Go Flock Yourself”. The artwork criticizes the seemingly fascist French government migrant policies. The second one portrays a man offering a bone to a legless dog, a metaphor for the politicians tricking people with promises that can have masked agendas. Another one is Banksy’s take on the iconic “Napoleon Crossing the Alps” painting, that mocks the way the French government leads the country, blinding people with fake promises. The last three works feature stencil rats – Banksy’s signature stencil, inspired by Parisian artist Blek Le Rat, representing the working class and the way people can make significant changes when working together.

Although Banksy himself has not signed or confirmed the works as his own, experts say that the works certainly look genuine. Check out the new pieces in the gallery below!
