World famous graffiti artist Banksy has captured the world‰۪s attention with his graffiti, legal and illegal, in cities across the globe. The artist had many recurring motifs and themes in his work, such as criticizing war, government, political figures, and more, but he does not often use recurring characters. Perhaps that is what makes Banksy‰۪s rats so special; they can be found throughout New York, London, and beyond in different poses and with different messages, but they are surely rats. Rats inhabit the cities; they are sneaky, ugly, dirty, and they are everywhere. No matter how much people dislike these creatures, they must learn to live with them, because rats survive.
In Banksy's Love Rat piece, first discovered in Liverpool, UK, is simple enough. It features a rat holding a red paintbrush in his two little paws, and on the wall, he has drawn a heart. The heart is dripping with red paint (bleeding?), probably due to the rat‰۪s unsteady paws, but it is bold and complete. In this image, people see a city rat that stands for love, and perhaps they see themselves.
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.
