British street art icon Banksy honors the black community with his latest pieces. The painting showcase a memorial centered around a portrait of a ghostly figure. The paint pays tribute to the death of George Floyd and Black Live Matter.
Banksy made a statement about the current issue:
“At first I thought I should just shut up and listen to black people about this issue. But why would I do that? It’s not their problem, it’s mine. People of colour are being failed by the system. The white system. Like a broken pipe flooding the apartment of the people living downstairs. The faulty system is making their life a misery, but it’s not their job to fix it. They can’t, no one will let them in the apartment upstairs.This is a white problem. And if white people don’t fix it, someone will have to come upstairs and kick the door in.”
