What is the difference between graffiti and street art?
Where has banksy's artwork been seen across the world?
Can you name some artworks that Banksy has done?
I believe Banksy is an articulate mind with moving political ideas and mesmerising artworks. My reaction to his provocative pieces is one that is quite positive, as art can only be perceived as positive if you understand it. His artworks shed light on themes that are so fundamental in this day and age yet still overlooked. I believe Banksy is an outrageously talented artist with great messages within his artworks.
Banksy's work strikes a chord with many, particularly youth's becasue of the blunt usage of messages.
Some admire and love the creativity of Banksy's artwork, some think his artwork in incredible. On the other hand some people's reactions towards Banksy's artwork are spiteful, shocked, angry and unpleased. Some people don't like Banksy's artwork, because he graffit's over buildings and places which is illegal.
He has managed to develop a large following.
When and Where was Banksy Born?
City Of Birth: Bristol, United Kingdom
His most recognised artworks would be ‘Girl with balloon’ and ‘Rage, The Flower Thrower’. He uses stencils, though it is unknown how he makes them, most likely spray paint or normal paint.
BAnksy's art practice
Quote: “Speak softly, but carry a big can of paint.”
You don’t need to speak loudly to make a statement, your artwork can do that for you.
I think that he wants to criticize society, show sarcasm in his artworks about the government and show how hypocritical we are for completing actions that we’ve said are wrong or shouldn’t be done etc.
Public art is a visual representation of how we see the world and it isn't neccessarily the same for everyone. Banksy shows this by using very sarcastic or critical quotes, about society, and pictures in his art that normally wouldn't be portrayed with art. I think audiences would appreciate Banksy's art more if it were in a gallery. I think that because it's on some wall in a street, people will look, they just won't pay all that much attention or you could get it painted over. In a gallery, people will actully take time to try and figure out what you mean.
