Video: Banksy Does Gaza

Earlier today, Banksy shared some photos and a video of what he’s currently getting up to. Apparently the artist is in Gaza at the moment as seen in the aforementioned clip titled "Make this the year YOU discover a new destination." The video is a tongue and cheek nod to the tourism industry via travel commercial and sees Banksy entering an “illegal tunnel” and emerging in Gaza.  Several new pieces are put up among the urban decay including the one above which is a play on Niobe, the Greek goddess that was punished for pride in her children. The project seems to be a commentary on Israel’s Operation Protective Edge and the subsequent hardships suffered by Palestinians, check it out below…
