Banksy's One Nation Under CCTV was one of many digs aimed at Big Brother. This piece, however, is memorable for the way Banksy pulled off the stunt. The Royal Mail granted permission for the creation of an enormous piece on the wall within the Post Office yard on Newman Street, without knowing what the work would look like. Scaffolding was constructed, reaching multiple stories and standing for a large portion of the week.
Much to the surprise of the Royal Mail and surrounding residents, the scaffolding would be removed to unveil the message "One Nation Under CCTV." The piece shows a young boy on the sixth rung of a tall ladder, rolling out the block lettering. To the left of the subject is a police officer and watchdog. The piece was seen as a bold statement against CCTV, perfectly placed directly to the left of a number of closed-circuit cameras. The work was later painted over.
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.
