Street artist Banksy has used his creations to comment on important issues around the world, from the environment to war, to child poverty.

Banksy`s latest mural focuses on Europe’s migrant crisis, and he’s making his point by using a well known figure and a surprising connection.

The mural, located in a migrant camp in Calais, France, depicts Steve Jobs, the late co-founder of the Apple empire. Jobs is shown carrying a black garbage bag and one of the early model Macintosh computers.

It suggests that Jobs is the product of immigration to America. He was aopted, but his biological father was from Syria, and was a graduate student who came to the U-S to study.
