In 2015, Banksy produced four artworks in support of migrants in Calais. One of these works, located not far from the belfry of the town hall, is a pastiche of the famous painting Le Radeau de La Méduse by the French painter Théodore Géricault. Instead of the ship Argus, which rescued the survivors at the time, there is a car ferry, similar to those that travel between Calais and Dover but are inaccessible to migrants. Banksy is issuing a warning cry about the migration crisis in Europe, ongoing to this day. By re-creating Le Radeau de La Méduse, he stands behind Géricaults activism two centuries earlier, in service of freedom.
