When Hurricane Katrina made the city of New Orleans a disaster zone, there were some reports of looting. However, the media was criticized for exaggerating these reports, and also of being racist in their coverage of the so-called looting. Banksy‰۪s looting soldiers piece points a critical and ironic finger at the government‰۪s slow and poor response to the natural disaster with an image of two National Guard soldiers looting someone‰۪s home and stealing electronics through the window. Banksy makes clever use of a real window and creates a mirror image of it to show a soldier sitting on the ledge with a TV in his arms, handing it to his partner.
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.
