BANSKY-THE GRAFFITI ART BAD BOY

Filed under: bansky — Tags: — admin @ 8:07 am

Graffiti art that makes a social or political statement has become incredibly popular lately with the prominence of artists like BANSKY.  Bansky’s works is impressive and

often takes on a large, colossal presence. He is known throughout the world and the scale of his pieces really contributes to the social environment and the economical  issues he addresses with his art. 

Communicating morality through satire is not a new idea, and yet we are seeing with the cultural phenomenon that is graffiti art-a resurgence in our interest in

social/political commentary. Where most graffiti art speaks to those within a fairly narrow margin of society, it’s tags laden with esoteric symbols purposely meant to puzzle the uninitiated;

Banksy’s work delivers to a much larger audience partially due to the technological revolution and it’s ability to document and send out real-time information on what would ordinarily have a limited life-span.

 

Street art is so important not only for the issues that it addresses, but for its accessibility to those who may be less likely to seek out art.  Very amazing stuff!

 

Totally in love with his work!!
