Palestinian Banksy’s Satirical Travel Show : Video

anksy goes undercover in war torn Gaza to create astonishing new art caught on film YouTube

The Artist Bansky from Gaza has released the video to promote the Strip .
Its a Promo for Travel Agencies to educate the  traveller about the Gaza Strip.
The Satirical piece shows how Art survives in places where it has no place .

The elusive artist’s video shows children playing amongst a mural of a giant Cat. Bansky explains “A local man came up and said ‘Please – what does this mean?’ “I explained I wanted to highlight the destruction in Gaza by posting photos on my website – but on the internet people only look at pictures of kittens.”

Web.Orange reports: The film, posted on the elusive artist’s website, appears to show him entering through one of the underground tunnels carrying cans of spray paint.

“Make this the year you discover a new destination,” it says before showing the extensive bomb damage in the region.

After footage from a drone strike is shown, the film goes on to say: “Development opportunities are everywhere.”

The graffiti artist used his anonymity to create pieces of art on some of the rubble, including a stencil of children swinging from a surveillance tower.

Its caption reads: “Gaza is often described as ‘the world’s largest open air prison’ because no-one is allowed to enter or leave.

“But that seems a bit unfair to prisons – they don’t have their electricity and drinking water cut off randomly almost every day.”
