Watch: LushSux in action
An Australian graffiti artist has created a series of protest works on the Palestinian side of the wall between Israel and the West Bank. His latest creation depicts Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump sharing a kiss.
His face hidden, the artist, known as LushSux, told Reuters he wishes to draw attention to the “indoor prison” in which he says the Palestinians are stuck. “The wall is a message in itself … I don’t need to write ‘Free Palestine’ or something like that,” he added.
In the Netanyahu-Trump mural, the former is seen saying, “Thanks for the wall, Trumpy Pumpkin,” to which the latter replies, “Your country and you will always come first, my love.”
Another one of LushSux’s murals shows US actor Morgan Freeman alongside a quote by former South African President Nelson Mandela, “We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians.”
