Anonymous street artist Banksy is no stranger to political and societal commentary, whether addressing attitudes towards refugees, gentrification or nationalism.
And the latest work posted to his Instagram page is no different, painted on a customs gate formerly seen at London Heathrow.
The painting is titled ‘Keep Ou’ and shows a rat using the ‘T’ from a ‘Keep Out’ sign to break open a padlock.
It was unveiled at the Royal Academy Summer Show on June 6 and posted to Banksy’s Instagram earlier this week.
The door was purchased at an auction in April 2018 and was one of hundreds of pieces from Heathrow Terminal One to go on sale.
CA Global Partners, which conducted the auction, said more than 4,000 people had registered to bid in it.
Banksy’s previous pieces include a ‘Vote to Leave’ poster covered by a balloon to make it read ‘Vote to Love’, a spray painting in Dover showing a man chipping at one of the stars of the European Union flag, and a plaster on a UK flag titled Untied Kingdom.
‘Keep Ou’ will be on display at London’s Royal Academy until August 12.
