The world famous UK-based graffiti artist Banksy is no stranger to controversy. Many of his pieces are politically motivated in the vein of social and cultural criticism of war, capitalism and politicians. The artist is also no stranger to a little satirical humor, though, which he cleverly conveys in some of his less serious but just as thought-provoking pieces. This is the case with his piece known as Mona Lisa with Bazooka Rocket, which was originally located in London, UK.
In this simple and comical piece, the viewer sees Mona Lisa wearing her classic ambiguous facial expression, but instead of sitting idly with her hands folded, she is holding a bazooka rocket and wearing a headset as if she is a soldier. The message Banksy is trying to convey is unclear. Perhaps he is showing how numb people and soldiers have grown to war and violence that their feelings can be summed up in Mona Lisas cool, calm expression of nothing in particular.
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.
