Despite earning a large following for his penchant of tagging walls with his artwork, the mysterious artist has managed to keep his identity a secret and rarely comments on his work.

Images are beginning to circulate across the internet, and the hotel is reportedly opening for bookings at the end of the month.

The nine-room "Walled Off Hotel" is not an art stunt, but a real business venture, the artist insists.

The Walled Off Hotel is not Banksy's first foray into the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The intention of the hotel, he says, is to "tell the story of the wall from every side and give visitors the opportunity to discover it for themselves".

Although Israelis are officially banned by Tel Aviv from entering the Palestinian Authority-controlled areas in the West Bank, the hotel, which opened on Friday, is situated in an area just outside the city which is under Israeli control. The installation is the most ambitious since Banksy created Dismaland, a parody of Disneyland containing a child loanshark booth and a fairytale-castle slum attraction.

One depicts the signing of the Balfour Declaration which set the conditions for the establishment of Israel 100 years ago this year.

Mateen pledged allegiance to ISIS during his June 12 attack at a gay nightclub where he killed 49 people and injured dozens more. Salman has been charged with helping Mateen plan the worst mass shooting in modern USA history and lying to investigators.


"It's exactly one hundred years since Britain took control of Palestine and started re-arranging the furniture - with chaotic results", Banksy said.

Of course, Banksy is making a political statement.

Banksy has visited the region on a number of occasions, most recently in 2015 when he snuck into the Gaza Strip and painted on the walls of houses destroyed by Israeli air strikes. We offer an especially warm welcome to young Israelis.

The "Walled Off Hotel" also features a gallery of work by local Palestinian artists and employs people from the surrounding community. Their hopes may not be fulfilled, The Guardian notes, since visiting the Palestinian territories means breaking the law. The property will also host exhibitions by Palestinian artists in an effort to bring their work to a wider audience.

The Presidential Suite will presumably cost more and for good reason.
