Banksy's Mona Lisa Rocketlauncher first appeared in the Soho district of West London. A video briefly surfaced online where Banksy appears to be at work on this piece. The video shows the process of whitewashing, and the person on camera places an image of Mona Lisa holding a bazooka gun on the wall. The setting of the video appears to be Noel Street. The work remains true to Mona Lisa's lackluster expression, but she has a rocketlauncher placed on her shoulder and wears a headset. Her hands are no longer folded in the traditional manner, instead bracing the weight of the weapon she holds. A bit of a comical and less-thought provoking piece, Mona Lisa is seen calm and collected even in the face of war.
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.
