About Art

I Must Not Copy What I See on Simpsons is a humorous selection of street art by Banksy. The print places a comical, ironic spin on the popular American television program The Simpsons. Anyone familiar with the show‰۪s unique introduction sequence will recognize the allusion immediately. The young rascal Bart Simpson scrawls a different funny phrase every week on a school chalkboard during the show‰۪s opening, and the artist uses this slice of American pop culture brilliantly in this print.

Every detail of this art piece is essentially an exact copy of Bart Simpson‰۪s introduction scene in the television program. This is a delicious irony when juxtaposed with the message written on the chalkboard. The artist has done exactly what he tells the world not to do. Hanging this art piece near a child‰۪s bedroom would be an apt location to capture the humor of this print.

On a deeper level the artist seems to comment on the tendency of pop culture to influence street art. Characters created in television programs take on a life of their own, and the artist seems to be pointing out this tendency to idolize what appears on television. The choice of colors matches the scene from The Simpsons perfectly, suggesting laziness on the part of the artist, which is precisely what Bart Simpson shows in the program‰۪s introduction.

About Banksy

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.
