More About Banksy Westbank

West bank is a territory on the bank of Jordan River in the Middle East. The Israeli west bank barrier separates Israel from Jordan and is highly controversial. Banksy one of the most celebrated street artist of our times who has achieved celebrity status due to his unknown identity has created headlines by turning this wall into his personal concrete canvas.

Banksy painted nine images on this barrier in august of 2005. These images include a picture of an open sky as seen through the wall, a ladder going up and over the wall, a dove of peace with a bulletproof vest strapped over it, an Israeli soldier being frisked by a young girl with pigtails, a hole in the wall with a beach on the other side, a mountain landscape on the other side and children digging through a wall. These paintings were created on the Palestinian side of the barrier near Bethlehem.

The barrier is about 680 kilometers wide and is still being erected by the Israelis. The Israelis have claimed that it is necessary to protect their people from Palestinian suicide bombers. However many people condemn this barrier as being illegal and in fact it was accused of violating international law by the International court of justice. Graffiti is one of the most common types of protest on this wall and there are many messages demanding an end to the barrier. However it was Banksys graffiti on the barrier that drew international attention to it.

Banksy himself condemned this wall and is said to have created these images to draw attention to the lives of people living in west bank. He was quoted saying the wall was the ultimate activity holiday destination for graffiti writers.

Banksy has encouraged people to visit Bethlehem and witness the uselessness of the wall for themselves.

The paintings, though not as political as his earlier works have nevertheless reflected his feelings for the wall which he says essentially turns Palestine into the worlds largest open prison. Banksys spokeswoman has said that he had some harrowing experiences while paining the wall when some men from the Israeli security force pointed guns at him and fired threateningly into the air.

These paintings on the west bank barrier have been thoroughly documented in his book Wall and Piece published originally in 2005. In the book, Banksy also included the reaction from an old Palestinian who told Banksy You paint the wall, you make it look beautiful. When Banksy thanked him, the man replied We dont want it to be beautiful, we hate this wall, go home.

Although street art is considered vandalism by many and is in fact illegal, Banksys satirical works have endeared him to many people and have been described as heart warming. This is evident from the thousands of pounds his works fetch and the huge celebrity following he has. Banksys true identity may not be known but his works of art on the west bank barrier have raised global attention on the uselessness of the wall and are reminiscent of the graffiti on the Berlin wall.
