Street artist funds & decorates a rescue ship to save migrants

Aug 29, 2020 13:34 IST

Anonymous street artist Banksy has funded and decorated a rescue ship to help migrants and refugees crossing the Mediterranean from North Africa to Europe.

Banksy purchased the ship with the help of proceeds from his artwork and named it "Louise Michel".

As part of the Louise Michel project, the ship aims to rescue anyone without any prejudice.

Banksy created his magic on the ship, spray-painting it bright pink and made an image of a girl in a life jacket reaching out to a lifebelt, which is 'heart-shaped'. 

In its first mission on the 18th of August, the boat rescued 89 people from Libya.
