STREET ARTIST BANKSY has confirmed that he “blitzed” Paris with up to a dozen murals as a tribute to the May 1968 uprising and even taking aim at the French government’s hard line on migrants. He also acknowledged the 50 year anniversary since the ‘May 68‘ uprising in France which he claims was the birthplace of modern stencil art.
The first piece depicts a girl painting over a swastika using a pink Victorian pattern. It definitely looks like a reference to the artist’s 2008 work called “Go Flock Yourself.” The mural criticizes the seemingly fascist French government’s migrant policies. The girl was found near the Porte de la Chapelle metro station, the site of Paris’s official refugee centre “La Bulle” until August 2017.
