The famed graffiti art I Am Your Father by Banksy Blank plays on science fiction pop culture cleverly. In one manner of speaking, the art is like a pun that echoes the epically climactic quote from the legendary Star Wars franchise. At a glance, the print has a childish playfulness, but a closer look reveals much more. Facing each other as if in confrontation, an Imperial Empire AT-ST and AT-AT Walker seem to question one another. The smaller AT-ST with a hovering question mark stands before the towering AT-AT Walker who appears to menace his alleged offspring. The AT-ATís single stride towards the AT-ST and play on Darth Vaderís infamous revelation to his son Luke Skywalker mirrors the filmís tension. Utilizing black-and-white simplicity, the I Am Your Father art piece possesses a dual meaning too. The play on pop culture is only the surface aspect of the piece. Delving deeper, one questions the plight of a fatherless son meeting his father for the first time. Displaying this art piece in a small portrait frame would complement the irony of the piece distinctly. This graphic represents the broken family through the distortion of pop culture, an interpretation that sets I Am Father apart from similar Banksy graffiti art.
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. Itís not only the curiosity of his identity that makes the artist famous, itís his impeccable political pieces and artwork that stir up discussions on the underlying themes. By calling attention to the issues depicted in his pieces, Banksyís controversial work requires people to think deeply about the issues heís attempting to bring to light.
