Fresh off Paris Fashion Week, it seems that Banksy has created new murals throughout the French capital, reports ABC News.

The elusive British street artist has now taken aim at the French government’s crackdown on migrants in the series of new murals, with one work depicting a girl spray-painting a wallpaper pattern over a swastika.

Another piece is a play on the 1801 Jacques-Louis David painting of Napoleon crossing the Alps, which perhaps references his view of France’s leadership. The other showcases a dog missing a leg and being offered a bone by a man holding a saw behind his back, while another depicts a rat with a bow-tie on its head, showcasing evidence of Banksy’s signature dark humor.

For the full story, head on over to ABC News.

In related news, Banksy’s rare and most popular artwork is on display at this London exhibition.
