Banksy invades Paris.

In the last few days, seven new works by the most famous street artist in the world have appeared on the walls of the Ville Lumiere.

The graffiti are located in Porte de la Chapelle, avenue de Flandres, in the fifth arrondissement and, for Le Monde, evoke the crisis of migrants and French politics around this issue.

The first artwork was discovered June 20th, on Refugees World Day. It is located in the eighteenth arrondissement, near Porte de la Chapelle, a few meters from an old refugee reception center, dismantled last March and depicts a girl standing on an improvised stool, holding a spray can while drawing a motif of pink upholstery to cover a swastika.

In another graffito, a very harsh image, a gentleman tends to a dog the same bone as his amputated paw, while in different areas of the city emerge a series of mice, one of the recurrent subjects of the art of Banksy.

The writer has also ventured into a reinterpretation of the famous painting Napoleon crossing the Alps, painted in 1801 by Jacques-Louis David, who, for the occasion, becomes a kind of veiled woman.

The last graffiti to be traced, a sad person immersed in recollection, is on the door of the Bataclan, in the passage Saint-Pierre Amelot, in the twenty-first arrondissement, the place of the tragica massacre during a concert of the Eagles of Death Metal.
