Banksy’s Mediterranean Sea View 2017

Banksy’s “Mediterranean sea view 2017” pointedly alludes to the thousands of lives lost at sea during the European migrant crisis of the 2010s.

The paintings of “abandoned lifejackets and buoys to 19th century-style seascapes” were originally created for Banksy’s Walled Off Hotel.

The painting appeared in Sotheby’s Rembrant to Richter sale, and all proceeds went towards creating a new acute stroke unit and buying children’s rehabilitation equipment for the Bethlehem Arab Society for Rehabilitation.
