Banksy has posted a video on Instagram showing a man assembling a set of pictures near St Mark’s Square in Venice. When seen together the pictures depict a huge cruising vessel “dwarfing gondoliers and local landmqarks” (The Art Newspaper). The sign the mystery figure (Banksy) puts in front of the pictures reads “Venice in Oil”. Banksy addresses the pollution and problems caused by the vast cruise ships in the Grand Canal.
Here’s the Insta video the artist posted via The Art Newspaper.
