About Art

Black White Hmv Rocket Dog first appeared in Bristol, England. The very first glance at this art piece conveys a stark sense of humor. The simple black-and-white, two-tone technique used in the print adds to the irony of the initial impact. The scene in the art piece depicts a hound with a shoulder-mounted bazooka rocket aimed casually at a gramophone. Holding the rocket launcher with a single paw, the hound in the print aims straight down the middle of the gramophone‰۪s cone.

On a deeper level, this art piece shows the contrast between youth and old age, aged conservatism versus youthful liberalism. This effect is magnified by the artist‰۪s choice of black and white colors exclusively. The gramophone seems to represent the elderly times when this device was the only means of musical entertainment. The dog‰۪s intention in the print is to destroy the old ways for good.

About Banksy

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.
