Banksy, the famous street artist, turned very famous street artist, put a piece up last night in France. More specifically on a concrete bridge in the Calais migrant camp, a place known as “The Jungle”. Known as the Jungle, the makeshift town is located on what used to be a rubbish tip on the outskirts of the French port and is currently home to more than 7,000 migrants. The majority come from war-torn Syria and Afghanistan are are hoping to get to the UK to start a new life. The timely new artwork features Jobs’ trademark spectacles, as he carries an early Apple computer in one hand a sack of belongings on his back. Banksy released a statement about the piece: “We’re often led to believe migration is a drain on the country’s resources, but Steve Jobs was the son of a Syrian migrant. “Apple is the world’s most profitable company, it pays over $7 billion a year in taxes - and it only exists because they allowed in a young man from Homs.”
On February 24, 1955, Joanne Carole Schieble gave birth to a baby boy who would grow up to become Steve Jobs. Abdulfattah Jandali, a Muslim man who grew up in Syria and met Schieble while studying in America, was the baby’s biological father. After becoming pregnant in Syria, Schieble left for San Francisco, where she could safely have the child out of wedlock and put it up for adoption. In a new powerful piece on a wall in the Calais Jungle–a migrant city in France–the graffiti artist Banksy has captured Jobs’ origin story. The work shows Jobs as an adult with a traveling sack over his shoulder, wearing his iconic blue jeans, black turtleneck, and carrying an early Apple computer. Surrounding the art are the tents of migrants who are attempting to enter the United Kingdom.

time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be
trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s
thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own
inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart
and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
Everything else is secondary. ~Steve Jobs

The last two are really inspiring icons for braindead businessmen who dream to invent any shit to become rich and respected as Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. They miss the most important detail - good creative ideas.
