The painting depicts a replica separation barrier, which the artist said was in order to promote his Walled Off hotel, in Bethlehem. The hotel is described as an “art hotel” on its official website and includes installation work by several artists. While the name of the hotel reflects the fact that it is built directly opposite the politically charged Israeli military wall.
