The city of Chicago has a particularly hard line against graffiti. Their Graffiti Blasters are very diligent in eradicating street art from the citys subways, walls, and streets. Banksys Baby Carriage Rolling Down Stairs is a notable exception, however. This graffiti can be found in the West Loop stenciled on a building on the corner of Peoria and Randolph. It is reputedly the earliest known Banksy piece in Chicago.
On the side of this building are the visible remains of a stairway that once led to the second floor. Banksy painted the baby carriage as if it was rolling down these steps. From the position of the infants hands and the thrown bottle, the baby appears to be panicking. This is reminiscent of the movie The Untouchables, where a similar incident occurs during a gunfight. Nearly all Chicago residents who remember the mafia wars depicted in the film can relate to it. Like the title of this film, Banksys graffiti has remained untouched.‰
The piece does not convey any perceptible meaning. The artist probably could not hold himself back from making the allusion to the mob movie when he saw the wall.
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.
