    brilliant

    Soldier (to colleagues): What the fuck
    are you doing?

    Me: You'll have to wait
    til it's finished


    Soldier: Safety's off


    Old man:
    You paint the wall, you
    make it look beautiful.

    Me: Thanks


    Old man: We don't want it to be beautiful, we hate this
    wall, go home.

    Art prankster sprays Israeli wall



    Banksy's spray paint picture on security wall

    Enlarge Image

    Secretive "guerrilla" artist Banksy has decorated Israel's controversial West Bank barrier with satirical images of life on the other side.
    The nine paintings were created on the Palestinian side of the barrier.

    One depicts a hole in the wall with an idyllic beach, while another shows a mountain landscape on the other side.

    Banksy's spokeswoman Jo Brooks said: "The Israeli security forces did shoot in the air threateningly and there were quite a few guns pointed at him."

    Banksy said he was threatened by Israeli security forces

    Another picture shows the head of a white horse appearing to poke through, while he has also painted a ladder going over the wall.


    The 425-mile (680-kilometre) long barrier, made of concrete walls and razor-wire fences, is still being erected by Israeli authorities.

    Israel says the structure is necessary to protect the country from suicide bombers, but the International Court of Justice has said it breaches international law.

    Banksy, who hails from the UK city of Bristol, never allows himself to be photographed and created the images last week.

    Banksy is well known for his art stunts around the world

    He condemned the wall but described it as "the ultimate activity holiday destination for graffiti writers".


    His previous creations, which critics condemn as stunts, have included a bronze spoof of the statue of Justice from the Old Bailey, London, wearing thigh-high boots and a suspender belt.

    He also embarrassed the British Museum by planting a hoax cave painting of a man pushing a supermarket trolley, which he said went unnoticed for three days.

    He has also smuggled and hung works in galleries including the Tate Britain in London and the Metropolitan and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
