Transcript of Banksy

general briefing
Banksy is an
street artist who originates from the UK. His works usually depict dark humor and have hidden messages (anti-war, anti-capitalist or anti-establishment). Subjects often include rats, apes, policemen, soldiers, children, and the elderly.
Who is he? The world may never know
He is the son of a photocopier technician and trained as a butcher (what) but "became involved in graffiti during the great Bristol aerosol boom of the late 1980s."
Tristan Manco wrote the book Home Sweet Home which stated that Banksy "was born in 1974 and raised in Bristol, England".
Banky's work has similarities to Le Rat's, who is nicknamed "The Father of Stencil Graffiti"
types of art
Banksy is most well known for his stencil arts
He does, however, use several types of artwork
(well, the IDEAS are his)
Banksy also incorporates many 3D structures (sculptures) into his artwork. He focuses primarily on getting his message through; therefore he does not work with a restricted style
Stencils, Spray paint, Rocks, Walls, Sculpture material, Stickers everything, seriously. (He even used portal potties to imitate the Stonehedge structures.)
"sphinx made from cinder block and cement"

Banksy has a distinctive stenciling technique. He is a prodigy in the subject of street art for his amazing agility and creativity. Banksy also frequently uses 3D objects as a part of his works
In using stenciling, Banksy also uses a key method of propaganda: Repetition.

Shepard Fairey
Shepard Fairey is in fact, good friends with Banksy. His art is similar to Banksy's in the use of Repetition but different in general theme. Banksy focuses on an overall message, Fairey is more compact and supports an idea.
Blek le Rat
