The English artist Banksy showed his new work, which is dedicated to protests in the United States because of the killing by police of the detained African American George Floyd. The picture was posted on Banksy’s Instagram.
A mourning portrait with a dark figure is visible on the frame. The American flag hanging above the image gradually begins to burn, ignited by the flame of a candle.
The artist wrote that he initially did not want to speak on this topic but then realized that this is primarily a problem for white people. According to Banksy, the system makes people with different skin colors suffer and they have no way to change the situation. He warned that white people should deal with this, “otherwise someone will be forced to go upstairs and knock the door.”
