Banksy's ATM Girl appeared back in 2007 in the Exmouth Market, located on Rosebery Avenue in London. The work, which stood between two cafes, was directed at the conduct of Britain's banks at the time. The statement came on the heels of a report on Britain's banks' seeing record-setting profits and high-penalty fees. Banksy is never one to shy away from a piece involving social commentary, so this is something we would expect out of the British artist.
The work, which appears on a bricked-up window, shows a stenciled ATM machine. Reports from residents say that the ATM machine spewed a good amount of Banksy's false currency, known as Di Faced Tenners. The claw-grasped girl portion of the piece is referencing the grip the banks had on the citizens of Britain.
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.
