Banksy Shows Support for Occupy London Protests with Custom Monopoly Sculpture
Beloved street artist Banksy decided to show his support for the worldwide Occupy Movement by doing what he does best: He created a sculpture for the London protesters. His latest work of art and cultural criticism features a panhandling Rich “Uncle” Pennybags sitting atop a customized Monopoly board.
If you look closely at the red Monopoly house, you’ll see Banksy even included the tiny detail of a Tox shoutout, which he’s been known to do before. The board also features trans-national corporations listed on the property spaces in place of the famous Atlantic City streets.
