A Brexit-inspired mural by Banksy, an anonymous England-based graffiti artist, political activist and film director of unverified identity showing a metalworker chipping away at a star on the EU flag that has appeared in Dover. The artwork which was confirmed by the representatives of Banksy to be a genuine one has emerged overnight on the Castle Amusements building near the ferry terminal, which connects the UK with mainland Europe.
The stars of the flag depicts the “stand for the ideals of unity, solidarity and harmony among the peoples of Europe”
It is to be noted that the Dover artwork has depicted a Banksy mural back in 2015 at the main refugee camp where it showed Steve Jobs whose father was a Syrian immigrant. It also criticised the use of teargas against the refugees in Calais which appeared last year on the French Embassy in London. It depicted a girl from Les Miserables with tears in her eyes. The mural depicted CS gas billows aimed at her.
The mural has appeared at the time when the British PM Teresa May has called for a general election on June 8 and has also vehemently opposed the idea of paying USD 100 billion should the Britain exit from the EU.
