Banksy, who is an England-based street artist worldwide known for his graffiti artworks, has protested against the arrest of journalist and painter Zehra Doğan with a mural painting in Manhattan, New York.

Banksy did this mural painting in New York together with Borf, a street artist who was previously sentenced to 30 days in prison due to his illustrations.

Banksy has shared the details of his graffiti on his Instagram account.

Journalist and painter Zehra Doğan has been sentenced to 2 years, 9 months and 22 days in prison on the grounds that she shared the paintings, which she painted during the curfew period in Turkey’s southeastern district of Nusaybin in Mardin, on social media and she reported the notes of a 10-year old boy as news.

Banksy projected the painting which caused the journalist Zehra Doğan to stand trial over his graffiti with a note which read, “Sentenced to 2 years 9 months and 22 days in jail for painting this picture.”

Speaking to the New York Times, Banksy said, “I really feel sorry for her. I have painted things much more worthy of a custodial sentence.”
