I found the following, which comes from a series on the wall surrounding Palestine, to be particularly poignant, especially in light of one Palestinian who says he hated it because it made the wall beautiful.

I love the more minimalist ones, like the "No Stopping" sign. He seems like a pretty intelligent guy. I remember when he came to New York, the NYC intelligence agency (yeah, we have our own intelligence branch sadly) planted a tracking device on one of the trucks displaying his artwork, hoping it would lead back to him.

http://nypost.com/2013/10/11/banksys-latest-meat-truck-filled-with-stuffed-animals/

“If you’re the person who stuck a tracking device on the garden truck, you’re now following a car service in Queens,” Banksy says on the video.

Gothamist tracked down the truck Friday afternoon and spoke to the driver, who only identified himself as “Joe.”

“I don’t really know much,” he said. “I’m just a driver, a delivery guy. I’m just here delivering meat. Farm fresh meat.”

I hear what you are saying.

I saw one in the south of Brazil that looked like his. It was a simple rat on two legs holding a placard which said, in porkandcheese, vote for me.
