British voters decided last year to leave the 28-nation EU. The new mural is in the city that's the main British gateway for traffic to continental Europe. It also appeared as the U.K. is holding an early election.

Banksy's satirical stencils — rats, kissing policemen, riot police with smiley faces — first appeared on walls in Bristol before spreading to London and then to cities around the world. His artworks have fetched as much as $1.8 million.
