Pixelated face of Cardinal Sin

A Banksy pixelated priest and a view onto Museumplein, Amsterdam, January 2019

Banksy created his pixelated priest sculpture in 2011 in reaction to the child abuse scandal in the Catholic church. His classic priest sculpture received a pixelation makeover, a very clever way of showing him as a crime suspect.

This sculpture is on display as part of the unofficial Banksy “Laugh now” exhibition currently on at the Moco Museum in Amsterdam. It features many of his iconic works and is well worth visiting if you are anywhere in the area. The exhibition has been extended and I’m not aware of an official close date.
