There are about 40 Banksy pieces in Londons Andipa Gallery. One of the more serious and moving of these is Kids On Guns Hill. The work is done on a 51cm x 51cm square canvas using spray paint. It is another work depicting his iconic balloon girl. The simplicity and severity of the color contrasts gives it both beauty and deeper meaning, making it one of the artists more somber pieces.
It shows two children, a boy and a girl on top of a small hill with various guns and bombs littered about. The boy is holding a teddy bear on one arm while his other arm appears to be around the girls shoulders. The girl is holding a heart-shaped balloon on a string. The boy, the girl, the small hill, the teddy bear and the weapons are all done in solid black akin to a silhouette. This focuses the eye on the only bright spot of color in the canvas, the vivid red of the heart-shaped balloon.
Despite not calling himself an artist, Banksy has been considered by some as talented in that respect; he uses his original street art form, combined with Banksy stencil style. Due to the shroud of secrecy surrounding his real identity and his subversive character, Banksy has achieved somewhat of a cult following with his street art from some of the younger age group within the stenciling community. Tagging walls and billboards in the dark of night, sneaking around with a secret identity in urban areas. Leaving his political mark on the world for all to enjoy for free.
The infamous UK guerrilla artist, Banksy, is hitting the streets hard in London, Bristol, Australia, the USA, and just about everywhere in between. It‰۪s not only the curiosity of his identity that makes the artist famous, it‰۪s his impeccable political pieces and artwork that stir up discussions on the underlying themes. By calling attention to the issues depicted in his pieces, Banksy‰۪s controversial work requires people to think deeply about the issues he‰۪s attempting to bring to light.
