Banksy Makes First Comments on Brexit with New Mural

An illustration of Britain's political reality.

Overnight the town of Dover woke up to a rather controversial piece of artwork. British street artist Banksy took to the streets on Saturday, 6 May to paint and design this moving mural featuring a worker chipping away a gold star from the European flag.

The artwork soars four stories high and is located on the wall of a derelict building adjacent to A20 road. Banksy confirmed the mural was his own when he posted on his Instragram account, sharing photos of the new Brexit-inspired art only commenting ‘Dover, England’.

Its location is significant given that Dover is across the channel from Calais, the most common port between the two destinations and now home to Calais Jungle refugee camp.

His latest work also includes the Walled Off Hotel in Bethlehem and Bemusement Park of Dismaland in Somerset.
