Street artist Banksy brought Steve Jobs back to life in a Syrian refugee camp in order to make a point on the immigrant crisis, The Verge reported Friday.

The infamous Englishman known for his political and satirical graffiti spray-painted a picture of Jobs on a wall of a Syrian refugee camp in Calais, France, the news site said. The Apple founder is depicted wearing his iconic black turtle neck, blue jeans and white sneakers. His left hand clutches an original Macintosh computer while his right hand is slinging a weathered sack over his shoulder.

The photo of the artwork on Banksy's website carries the caption: "the son of a migrant from Syria." Jobs' biological father emigrated to the U.S. in the 1950s and ultimately gave his son up for adoption, according to The Verge. In later life, however, Jobs was adamant that his adoptive parents were his "real" parents, the news site reported.

Apple did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment.
