Urban Art Graffiti - Liberté, Égalité, Cable TV
Liberté, Égalité, Cable TV takes aim at the refugee crisis in Europe. The image is a reimagination of the famous Napoleon Crossing the Alps portrait, which depicts a horse-mounted Napoleon with his red cape blowing in the wind. In Banksy’s version, the figure on the horse is completely shrouded by a red cape evocative of an Islamic veil. The work’s title makes viewers question the unequal distribution of liberty and equality in the modern world.
