Banksy Sprays Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. Phone-Hacking Scandal
The elusive artist unveils his interpretation of the ongoing British investigation.
With plenty of actors and musicians speaking out on the News Corp. phone hacking scandal, street artist Banksy has put out his own statement with a little writing on the wall.
The Oscar-nominated artist posted his latest work on his site, speaking out on Rupert Murdoch’s phone hacking scandal with a humorous illustration. The piece, centered around a water tap that appears to be ringing, has a character saying, “Oh no…my tap’s been phoned.”
While it’s not indicated where in London the art is located, fans on Twitter are already calling it “brilliant” and “witty.”
Banksy, an England-based street artist, created the Academy Award-nominated documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop, which premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. The artist, who does not appear in the public because of his need for anonymity, was denied his request to attend the 2011 Oscars in disguise.
