Banksy once again shows his distain towards the UK’s decision to leave the EU through a new piece for the Royal Academy of Arts.
Banksy is not a Brexit fan. After last year’s “Vote to Love” poster, the world-famous street artist is now debuting a new piece for the Royal Academy of Arts’ annual Summer Exhibition.
“KEEP OU” showcases an EU arrivals gate from Heathrow airport. Banksy’s signature rat can be seen with the “T” from “KEEP OUT”, trying to break the lock keeping EU citizens from entering the UK.
The piece debuts at the 251st Summer Exhibition, which is curated by contemporary British painter Jock McFadyen. It includes 1,500 pieces, many of which are for sale. In addition to Brexit, themes revolve around sustainability and climate change.
The 2019 Summer Exhibition takes place at London’s Royal Academy from June 10 to August 12.
