Banksy (1974 — ) is a graffiti artist from Bristol, UK, whose artwork has appeared throughout London and other locations around the world. Despite this he carefully manages to keep his real name from the mainstream media. Banksy, despite not calling himself an artist, has been considered by some as talented in that respect; he uses his original street art form, often in combination with a distinctive stenciling technique, to promote alternative aspects of politics from those promoted by the mainstream media.
I have loved Banksy’s unique work for a long time because of how different it is from all other forms of street art and graffiti. The messages that he sends through his art are clear and very blunt, and I love that. here are some examples of his work:
these messages in the order of the pictures:
Pledge to the Plastic Bag and Cheap Goods.
The degradation and decline of our planet’s future. Can we catch it before it is too late?
The statement sinks as the ice keeps melting…
How long will birdlife survive this assault?
I Remember when all this was trees…
The Grim Reaper is steering this oil-filled vessel.
Playing with that which is transitory and volitile to our seas…
