Banksy, UK-based graffiti artist of worldwide fame and respect, has tagged cities across the globe with provocative art over the years. His work often deals with controversial themes such as war, militarism, capitalism and other topics. However, now and then the artist will create something a little less intense and more playful. That is the case with the piece known as ‰ÛÏOld Skool,‰ which was originally located in Clerkenwell Street in London, UK.
The piece features four older men dressed as B-Boys in traditional old school‰ fashion of the 1980s and early 90s. Banksy appears to be playing on the word old‰ by putting these elderly men ‰ one of whom is posing with a portable stereo as was popular during that time and another who is leaning over his walker while the other two pose cross armed ‰ in the position of young B-Boys who did break dancing in city streets, wore baggy clothes, and blasted early hip-hop music from their portable stereos.
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.
