The shock effect

Banksy loves his work a shock effect to create. Recently, he was still a commotion when a work of art itself for the half fragmented, as soon as it emptied was at auction house Sotheby’s in London. The artist said afterwards that he is actually the entire work was not willing to destroy.

Just as often, there are unmistakable political messages contained in the works of Banksy. That is the case, for example, the frescoes on the wall of separation between Palestine and Israel, by which he means the human rights of the Palestinians to defend.
