With Paris, France an evident target of Banksy’s oft-political brand of expressive art — having earlier explored a trio of murals surfacing earlier this week — it appears as if the enigmatic artist has created a new set of pieces that have descended upon the French capital.

Taking to Instagram, Banksy appears to have stenciled a masked rat caricature — wielding a sharp box cutter — found on the backside of a signpost hanging off the Centre Pompidou with the text, “Fifty years since the uprising in Paris 1968. The birthplace of modern stencil art.” The other image, although still keeping with the same rodent theme, depicts a sophisticated rat couple, which when taking the angled point of view into consideration, appear to be looking up at the iconic Eiffel Tower. What your thoughts on Banksy’s newest works?

In case you missed it, here are the best drops featuring KAWS, George Condo and more.
