New Banksy in New York – level 3

21-03-2018 15:00

A new Banksy mural appeared in New York City, and the new piece is a politically motivated show of support to Kurdish artist and journalist Zehra Dogan.

Last year, Dogan went to jail for painting the destruction of a city with Turkish flags on the buildings. At night, her painting is defiantly projected above the mural in New York.

Difficult words: mural (a painting on a wall), defiantly (in a manner that shows open resistance).
