Art Prankster Sprays Israeli Wall

Secretive “guerrilla” artist Banksy has decorated Israel’s illegal West Bank barrier with satirical images of life on the other side.

The nine paintings were created on the Palestinian side of the barrier.

One depicts a hole in the wall with an idyllic beach, while another shows a mountain landscape on the other side.

Another picture shows the head of a white horse appearing to poke through, while he has also painted a ladder going over the wall.

Banksy’s spokeswoman Jo Brooks said: “The Israeli security forces did shoot in the air threateningly and there were quite a few guns pointed at him.”

Banksy, who hails from the UK city of Bristol, never allows himself to be photographed and created the images last week.
