Banksy - Le Monde Article, by Pipes on Jul 15, 2019 21:30:58 GMT 1, (Google Translate)
For more than fifteen years, the mystery around the identity of the star of the street-artists maintains its legend and raises its rating. A track leads to Bristol, in the footsteps of a certain Robin Gunningham.
It's around three o'clock in the morning, June 25, 2018, when the phone rings. "Calls in the middle of the night about the Bataclan, it's crazy," says Jules Frutos, at the time co-manager of the Paris concert hall. I go. There is already a crowd. People take pictures. " All fix the emergency door, through which some of the spectators fled the terrorist attack of November 13, 2015. A sad-looking Madonna appeared there, stenciled. The author has not left a signature, but it is obvious.
We know that Banksy is in Paris. In recent days, the star of street art has left a dozen traces on the walls of the capital . His fans and journalists track him, but still ignore his face, and even his mode of operation. This time, there are pictures. A surveillance camera points to the Bataclan emergency exit. When asked if he watched the video and what he saw there, Jules Frutos eludes: "I can not talk about it. On one side, there is the artist. On the other, the commotion. It does not help. "
And the rest is behind their paywall...anyone got access?
