Here we see the familiar image of Thomas the Tank Engine, sound asleep on his night track. While Thomas is sleeping, two hooded wall artists paint his side. A charming street lamp shines down on the scene. The background is black, as wall artists work at night. The two artists are working quickly but carefully on the darker side of Thomas.
It is hard to say what was on the mind of the artist when he produced this work. The reference from childrens literature is represented by Thomas. Thomas is asleep, unaware of shenanigans being perpetrated on his engine housing. The two artists are making their blow against the empire while no one is looking, to be shown to all when the sun rises.
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.
