brexit mural

from banksy posted in art and design by nevereatshreddedwheat

Banksy's critique of Brexit appeared on the side of a Castle Amusements building in Dover, next to the ferry port connecting the UK with France, in early May 2017. The family that owns the building plans to attempt to sell the piece, although that same family was thwarted by a judge in 2015 after trying to sell an earlier Banksy piece. Who knows how long this one will stick around.

the walled off hotel

Banksy's Walled Off Hotel, (yes, an actual hotel where you can book an overnight stay) opened in Bethlehem in March of 2017 directly next to the wall separating the state of Israel from Palestine. Guests can occupy rooms decorated by Banksy and other artists, or the budget-conscious traveller can choose a room 'outfitted with surplus items from an Israeli military barracks.'

An art gallery and a piano bar featuring player piano compositions by Massive Attack, Trent Reznor and others are open daily to the public, and at the Wall-Mart next door you can buy graffiti supplies to add your own mark to the separating wall.
