Enigmatic street artist Banksy has just unveiled his latest artwork in the coastal town of Dover, which sits closely at the border between England and Europe. The mural depicts a worker in the graffiti artist’s signature black and white motif, chiseling away one of the stars from the European Union flag. The move signifies the UK’s controversial decision to leave the EU in a referendum vote made last year. With the simple caption “Dover, England,” the massive mural is positioned so that people leaving Dover Port can clearly see the artwork. Take a closer look at the mural below and be sure to also check out Brandalism and Medicom Toy’s rendition to two classic Banksy pieces.
