This graffiti work Sunflower Field Gas Mask Girl by the artist Banksy was originally located in London, England. The painting depicts a masked man who appears to have just finished spraying a graffiti sunflower onto a trash can. Instead of his face in the mask, there is a view of a meadow of flowers. It is because of this that the vandal appears to have good intentions. He is expressing what he thinks and feels onto his canvas, but the image of the man being masked invokes a feeling of coldness and sometimes even fear.
Its possible that Banksy is trying to dig deeper in the implications and on societys take on graffiti itself. Society seems to assume that creators of graffiti are these masked, hooded people who have evil intentions and want only to turn a nice city into a dirty one. In reality, these artists may have good intentions and may even be trying to spread goodwill. Instead they are regarded as outsiders and miscreants.
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. Its not only the curiosity of his identity that makes the artist famous, its 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.
