Banksy's Crayola Shooterwas one of the many works that went up in Los Angeles leading up to the Academy Awards. The work was placed on the side of an Urban Outfitters near the UCLA campus. The piece was created as commentary against child soldiers. The stenciled character is a young boy of Asian descent, firing off ammunition in the form of crayons from a gun roughly the same size as him. The stencil is black and white while the ammunition is colorful. Surrounding the subject are flowers and birds that are drawn in crayon. This leads us to believe that Banksy was insinuating the loss of childhood in a world filled with war.
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.
