Banksy Choose Your Weapon Keith Haring Dog originally appeared in London, England, and this aspect of the print should not be overlooked by the casual viewer. The stark contrast between the man and his dog is the most striking contradiction in this art piece. In a city as expansive as London, which is replete with street art, contrast and shock appeal are a necessary component in order to capture the eye of the commoner.
The man in the art piece represents the disaffected youth that features so prominently in British pop culture. The hooded sweatshirt with the cowl covering the head and bandanna hiding the young man‰۪s face both appear menacing. The black pants suggest dark intentions in the young man, but the casual hand-in-the-pocket posture of the figure in the art piece seems to suggest otherwise. To create contrast, the artist chose to paint the young man‰۪s shoes white ‰ a suggestion of contemporary fashion that is not lost on the youth of London.
The dog in the print, chained and barking upwardly, becomes the young man‰۪s weapon. Rather than a weapon such as a knife or firearm, this young man‰۪s weapon is man‰۪s best friend‰, which is portrayed minimally and in dramatic contrast to the painting technique used on the young man. For this artist, his weapon is his street art.
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.
