World renowned, graffiti artist, Banksy has left his mark once more - this time in a refugee camp in Calais, France. The artist created a mural that showcases Apple founder, Steve Jobs as a migrant carrying the first version of the Apple computer and a small bag of possessions. This piece of art is mean to show the world the benefits of migration, a positive light shed on the current Syrian refugee crisis. Jobs is the son of a Syrian migrant and grew up in San Francisco to become one of the most influential people in technology worldwide. Banksy’s work has been known to cause debates and get people talking about particular social and political issues. He has since become a political activist and film producer, his last film about his work making it to the Sundance Film festival.
