Art prankster Banksy sprays Israeli wall

Secretive "guerrilla" artist Banksy has decorated Israel's controversial West Bank barrier with satirical images of life on the other side.

Banksy uses street art and graffiti to create a mode of expression in the urban environment, or vandalize it, directed at alternative politics. He also does paid work for advertising, thereby feeding the same system he claims to rebel against. He earlier 'hit' New York museums, as well as the Tate, with his work.

Stunning images - The revolution will not be terrorised, as he says on his site.
