Banksy, world famous graffiti artist of England with a mysterious identity, has made a name for himself by creating beautiful and provocative works of graffiti art in cities all over the world. His art usually involves social or political commentary; he is known for his moving but sometimes disturbing imagery to communicate provocative messages. His many works featuring children often speak to the corrupt cultures they find themselves in, sometimes involving war via soldiers or extreme consumerism via symbols of capitalism.
In the case of Banksy’s Fridge Kite piece, while the meaning is not immediately apparent, it is possible that the artist is taking on the issue of poverty and showing how it affects children. The work features a silhouette of a child flying a kite ” but instead of a kite, there is a refrigerator at the end of his string flying in the wind. Some have interpreted the imagery as showing the fridge being so light and empty of food that it can fly in the air. Even if the child is poor and has no food, he still has his innocence, and his appetite for fun through flying kites, which makes the image bittersweet.
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.
