The Drunken Angel Canvas by Banksy, a British street artist, was first produced on the London Bridge. The painting shows a man with wings and halo, holding something in his right hand. The image is done in white on a black background. In front of the man/angel is a gray bottle with a red X on it. The style of the painting suggests world-weariness. The print is available in a variety of sizes, and in three-piece and eight-piece framing. It is also available as a black image on a white background.
The painting has an overall tired, frustrated feel to it. The wings and halo can mean good intentions; the posture of the angel shows the best effort was not enough; the object in his hand reminiscent of a cigarette; the bottle suggests alcohol. The interpretation is that hard effort does not necessarily improve reality. It is easy to turn to substance abuse to ease these feelings. The gray of the bottle and the red X suggest this route should be avoided. The way the angel is depicted, with shadowed areas implies he has given much.
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.
