The painting Chicken & Egg by Banksy was exhibited at the Lanzic Gallery in Soho, London, England in March 2006. Although most of Banksys work is stencil graffiti art, there are a few pieces that are in other media formats, such as oil paintings and pencil sketches. This painting happens to be a traditional stencil graffiti art.
This painting depicts a chicken peeing into a pan with an egg being prepared, seemingly sunny side up. It seems to be a modern interpretation of the classic question of whether or not the chicken or the egg came first. It also seems to depict the issue of a chicken peering into perhaps her own egg being cooked and eaten by a human. In terms of the chicken versus the egg, Banksy seems to comment that the answer really does not matter. Life itself is fragile enough and there are some things that are better left unexplained. After all, if everything had an answer, then there would be nothing worth exploring in the world. The painting is a little bit ironic in the sense that the two objects are the same and yet so different: the egg was a once potential egg, and the chicken, while it is a chicken, seems to be confused and unsure of its life. It is unclear which is better off in retrospect.
All critiques aside, this painting serves as a great conversation starter and might elicit a lot of conversation and discover, whether it be hung up in the kitchen or not.
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.
