Gaza graffiti from street artist Banksy


UK street artist Banksy has been at work in Gaza creating several new works in the region after apparently entering through underground tunnels.

In a short clip posted on his website, a hooded Banksy – an artist whose true indentity is unknown – steps through a metal door into a neighbourhood which appears to have been devastated by war.

The video then shows him using stencils and spray paint to create graffiti artwork.


One design shows a kitten with a pink bow around its neck playing with a metal ball.

A caption on Banksy’s website reads: “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.”
