Eight new stencils in Paris confirmed by Banky’s Instagram. 28 June 2018

Banksy’s stay in Paris has been a productive one. On 28 June, Banksy’s Instagram confirmed eight new stencils.

As reported by Street Art News (www.streetartnews.net) the following two pieces did appear in Paris at the same time and in the same area, but,  they haven’t been confirmed yet. Judging by style, execution and the political content they ought to be authentic.

The piece was published on Banksy’s Instagram account on 11 June 2018. In his own words:

“I entered an early version of this into the RA summer exhibition under the pseudonym Bryan S Gaakman – an anagram of ‘banksy anagram’. It was refused. Then a month later I got a mail from the co-ordinator Grayson Perry asking me to submit something so I sent it again. It’s now hanging in gallery 3.”

The piece depicts a typical real-estate developer equipped with a hardhat and a graph instead of a whip in his hand. A reference to Mr. Trump’s beginnings as heir to the vast real estate empire founded by his father Fred Trump?
