VENICE, Italy — Street artist Banksy has taken his political statements to Italy.
"Despite being the largest and most prestigious art event in the world, for some reason I've never been invited," Banksy wrote on his verified Instagram account.
In the video, a man is shown with a series of paintings depicting a large cruise ship in the Italian city, CNN reported. At the end of the video, police appear to be evicting the man from the piazza.
The paintings refer to the controversy of large cruise ships docking in Venice's canals, the BBC reported.
Banksy's identity has never been officially revealed. He is noted for a series of satirical graffiti pieces that appeared on buildings in the United Kingdom, the BBC reported.
