Cardinal Sin – Banksy Unveils His Latest Work


The anonymous street artist Banksy is known for his graffiti work and graphic statements. Hi latest work is a sculpture being displayed at the walker art gallery in liverpool alongside artistic masterpieces by rubens and van dyck within room three of the museum’s 17th century old master galleries.

His new art work, Cardinal Sin, is a vandalised statue of a priest with a sawed off face, in place if the face is an arrangement of blank tiles which gives it a pixellated look. The vandalised sculpture of a priest is a comment on the child abuse cover-up within the Catholic church and is being displayed “for an indefinite amount of time”
