Another legendary Banksy's graffiti that everyone should recognize is "The Naked Man". It appeared on the building of a sexually transmitted disease clinic in the center of Bristol. The plot of the painting is simple and even anecdotal: a naked lover is hanging from the window sill while husband looks out of the window in the opposite direction. The city council decided to preserve the painting and even allocated funds to restore it after vandals shot the graffiti with paintball guns.
Banksy's unquestionable virtue is his support that he gives to artists around the world. For instance, he has a painting dedicated to Pasha 183, a street artist from Russia who passed away in April 2013 at the age of 29. It depicts a can of paint with a fire burning over it. The work was titled "P183. R.I.P."
Another Banksy's work is dedicated to Zehra Dogan, a Turkish artist who was imprisoned in 2017 for creating a painting which depicted the destruction caused by Turkish security forces in the Nusaybin district. Zehra was found guilty of "depicting ongoing military operations and violating curfews" for which she was sentenced to two years and nine months in prison.
2015 saw the largest installation of Banksy's career, the apocalyptic theme park Dismaland, which was running for five weeks. During that time a major show with film screenings and performances by several musicians were held there. The word Dismaland comes from the English "dismal" - dystopian, dismal. The underlying idea of the park was a satirical reinvention of Disneyland. Its most noticeable art object was an inverted carriage with Cinderella which recalls the car crash that killed Princess Diana.
Banksy is a civic-minded man who is not afraid to speak out on the most painful topics.
In 2016, he painted every single apartment in a hotel in Bethlehem, whose windows face the separation barrier built by the Israeli military. It shows a drawing Banksy made 12 years ago during his first visit to Bethlehem: a dove of peace in a bulletproof vest. Far back as 2004 the International Court of Justice determined that the barrier built by Israel violated international law, yet Israeli officials claim that the wall is intended to protect from Palestinian attacks which is lie.
