If you're everyday selfie is worth a thousand words, who knows how many graffit artist Banksy's images earn, his latest showing the late Steve Jobs as a Syrian refugee in a camp in Calais. The camp, known as "the Jungle," shows Jobs - he himself the son of a Syrian migrant - carrying an early Apple Mac computer and a bag of other possessions, proving yet again the mysterious British artist is an expert at navigating the waters of our complex culture in a way no one else can imagine. The installation was also joined with a rare statement from Banksy noting Job's migrant roots, another piece of graffiti that reads "Nobody deserves to live this way!", and a piece recreating Theodore Gericault's famous painting depicting refugees waving toward a luxury yacht.
