Today on the interwebs, Banksy shared his latest series of works created at the migrant encampment in Calais, France. The timely stenciled pieces that appeared in the so called “jungle” refugee camp features commentary on the crisis like the one seen above reminding us that Steve Job’s biological father was a Syrian migrant. The elusive street artist further states – “We’re often led to believe migration is a drain on the country’s resources but Steve Jobs was the son of a Syrian migrant. Apple is the world’s most profitable company, it pays over $7bn (£4.6bn) a year in taxes – and it only exists because they allowed in a young man from Homs.”
Take a look at the other works Banksy created in the photos below as well as head here to look at the how he sent leftover materials and workers from Dismaland to the refugee camp to build dwellings, a community area, and a children’s play park.
