Banksy creates mural in support of jailed Turkish artist

British artist Banksy has unveiled a mural in New York highlighting the case of a Turkish artist who was jailed for nearly three years over a painting.

Zehra Dogan was reportedly imprisoned last year for her painting of a brutally damaged Turkish city.

Banksy's protest shows the image projected above a mural of black tally marks which resemble jail bars and represent the time she has spent in prison.

A painting of her face is seen peering from behind one set of bars.

The New York Times reported that the mural was 70ft long, made in collaboration with graffiti artist Borf and was unveiled yesterday.
