Banksy strikes in Paris with powerful message about migration

Controversial street artist Banksy is believed to be responsible for a series of compelling murals which have popped up across Paris city centre this week. Art experts believe the works are a criticism of negative attitudes toward migration. Seven works attributed to the painter have been discovered in recent days, including one near a former centre for migrants at the French capital’s northern edge, according to the art website Artistik Rezo.

Nicolas Laugero Lasserre, the site’s editor, said contacts has informed him that Bansky was planning a trip to the capital. The first work was found on June 20 – World Refugee Day – and depicts a child spray painting pink flock wallpaper over a black swastika. The wallpaper stencil was used in a previous Banksy piece called ‘Go Flock Yourself’, which was shown at the 2009 Banksy versus Bristol Museum exposition. Laugero Lasserre described it as ‘a real signature’.
