    Banksy hits the West bank

    From The BBC News

    Art prankster sprays Israeli wall

    Banksy's spray paint picture on security wall
    Secretive "guerrilla" artist Banksy has decorated Israel's controversial 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.

    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 said he was threatened by Israeli security forces
    Another picture shows the head of a white horse appearing to poke through, while he has also painted a ladder going over the wall.

    The 425-mile (680-kilometre) long barrier, made of concrete walls and razor-wire fences, is still being erected by Israeli authorities.

    Israel says the structure is necessary to protect the country from suicide bombers, but the International Court of Justice has said it breaches international law.

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

    Banksy is well known for his art stunts around the world
    He condemned the wall but described it as "the ultimate activity holiday destination for graffiti writers".

    His previous creations, which critics condemn as stunts, have included a bronze spoof of the statue of Justice from the Old Bailey, London, wearing thigh-high boots and a suspender belt.

    He also embarrassed the British Museum by planting a hoax cave painting of a man pushing a supermarket trolley, which he said went unnoticed for three days.

    He has also smuggled and hung works in galleries including the Tate Britain in London and the Metropolitan and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

    I think israel is more concerned with people trying to get over the wall than painting on it.
