New Banksy Street Art In Palestine Reminds World That The Holidays Aren’t Happy For Everyone

English street artist Banksy is still active in the Palestinian Territories, and his latest politically-charged artwork to appear in the region has a unique holiday flair.

Long famed for the minimal, yet powerful murals he’s painted along the barrier separating Israel from the Palestinian-administered West Bank, the elusive graffiti extraordinaire has just revealed a new project in Bethlehem, a significant place in the context of Christmas, entitled The Alternativity. The first half of it, installed near the Milk Grotto Church, examines the meaning of ‘peace’ in the modern world. The second displays two angels attempting to pry their way through the ‘great wall.’

Just earlier this year, Banksy made a bold move in the same town by opening The Walled Off Hotel, an exposition/hostel hybrid designed to stand against the segregation between Israelis and Palestinians.

Scroll down to see what Banksy has been up to recently, and let us know what you think about his ‘season’s greetings.’

"Peace on Earth *terms and conditions apply". I think Banksy should work for Hallmark.
