A followup to last year's “Vote to Love” poster, Banksy once again expresses his distain towards Britain’s decision to leave the EU through a new piece for the Royal Academy of Arts’ annual Summer Exhibition. Titled "Keep Ou," the Brexit-themed artwork is made from an EU arrivals gate from Heathrow airport.

With the words "KEEP OUT" painted up top, Banksy's signature rat can be seen below with the "T" from "KEEP OUT." The rat is then using the letter to pick or break the lock.

Other works featured at the 251st Summer Exhibition, which is curated by contemporary British painter Jock McFadyen, are from David Mach, John Davies, Hannah Collins, and Jeremy Deller, among others. The 2019 showcase includes 1,500 pieces, many of which are for sale. In addition to Brexit, themes revolve around sustainability and climate change.

The 2019 Summer Exhibition is open at London’s Royal Academy from June 10 to August 12. Follow here for more detailed information on the event.
