A mural that appeared on a wall in the city of Margate is the work of Banksy, the BBC confirms. The artist titled them “Valentine’s mascara”. It draws attention to the problem of domestic violence.

A mural that appeared on a wall in the North Sea town of Margate in Kent has been confirmed to be the work of Banksy. The artist posted his photo on his Instagram account, giving the graffiti the title “Valentine’s mascara”. The new work of the famous street artist draws attention to the problem of domestic violence.

The graffiti depicts a 1950s-style housewife wearing a kitchen apron, yellow rubber gloves, smiling but with a swollen eye and a knocked out tooth. The woman apparently locks the man in the freezer. Two painted legs in men’s shoes protrude from a real device by the wall.

In a short time, Banksy’s new post was liked by over 880,000 users. Many of the comments relate to the issue of domestic violence. “I’m glad she got rid of him,” one of them reads.

Banksy posted a picture of his new job on Valentine’s Day morning. He also added photos of a close-up of a woman’s smiling face with clear signs of violence. The mural is complemented by, next to an old freezer, scattered garbage: e.g. broken garden chair, blue crate, beer bottle.

Banksy for Ukraine

In December, Banksy created 50 silkscreens to be sold to raise funds to help Ukrainians. The anonymous artist previously confirmed that he spent some time in Ukraine. Earlier, he posted a video of himself spray painting projects in a war-torn country and talking to locals.
