Banksy Confirms Seven New Murals in Ukraine

Recently confirming the gymnast graffiti on Instagram.

Following the reveal of the gymnast graffiti in Ukraine, elusive British artist Banksy has also confirmed seven other pieces in the war-torn country.

The seven murals have popped up in various locations around Ukraine including in the capital Kyiv, in the suburb of Irpin and the town of Borodyanka – all of which are amongst some of the hardest hit places. In the past few weeks, it was speculated that the anonymous artist might have found their way into the country. Those in the country documented sightings of a mural that depicts a man that appears to resemble Russian President Vladimir Putin thrown to the floor in a judo match with a young boy, where as another sees two children using a tank trap as a seesaw and a woman in a dressing gown and hair curlers, wearing a gas mask holding a fire extinguisher. The other is a man taking a bath, and finally, Banksy seems to have incorporated a phallic graffiti into one of his own, which included a loaded nuclear warhead and armored truck.

According to The Art Newspaper, Banksy confirmed to them that the seven murals are indeed their’s. Take a look above at the confirmed Banksy murals in Ukraine.
