Before his stunt of setting up shop without a permit to make a point about tourism on the streets during the Venice BiennaleBanksy had previously left an unconfirmed stencil on an abandoned house next to the canal. Created at water level, the elusive British artist must have used a boat to steady himself as he painted a young child wearing a life jacket and holding a pink flare up in the air. The piece located on the island of Dorsoduro continues Banksy’s work addressing the migrant crisis.
