The Wall

British artist Bansky recently painted Israel's West Bank security wall with satirical images of life on the other side. Bansky created nine paintings on the Palestinian side of the barrier.

Banksy is from Bristol in Britain and never allows himself to be photographed. .......

A Ramallah resident approached the painter while he was working on these scenes and said, "You are painting the wall and making it beautiful." "Thank you," the artist replied. "We don't want it to be beautiful. We hate this wall. Go home."
