SWOON and Ron English in Palestine

Monday morning and a new video clip from Jetset Graffiti from Banksy’s Santa’s Ghetto Exhibition in Bethlehem.

Ron English, SWOON, and Jetset Graffiti donated artwork to the Santa’s Ghetto exhibition and traveled to Bethlehem to paint on the Apartheid Wall and work in solidarity with the elusive British Artist, Banksy. The effort was made to raise awareness of the horrible reality that faces the Palestinian and Israeli people on a daily basis. Using art as a catalyst for change, these brave artist’s ventured into a live war-zone to create their unique and distinctive form of Street Art and make a statement to the world about the horrors of oppression and marginalization of minorities in modern society.

The exhibition raised 1 million dollars for the children of Palestine. For more information or to make a donation to the Santa’s Ghetto project, please visit:
