Banksy Emerges in New York and Calls Attention to Imprisoned Turkish Artist Zehra Doğan – Colossal


Banksy (previously) has emerged this week on the streets of New York, creating at least two new artworks, his first pieces in the city  since his ‘residency’ five years ago. In one large work spanning the length of the famed mural space at the corner of Houston Street and Bowery in Manhattan,tally marks form prison bars, symbolically counting the days of imprisonment for artist Zehra Doğan. The Turkish painter is currently serving a nearly three year prison sentence for the creation of a single painting. The mural is a collaboration between Banksy and street artist Borf.
