ABOUT

đź–Ť  Whether plastering cities with his trademark parachuting rat, painting imagined breaches in the West Bank barrier in Israel, or stenciling “We’re bored of fish” above the penguins’ enclosure in a zoo, Banksy creates street art with an irreverent wit and an international reputation that precedes his anonymous identity. “TV has made going to the theatre seem pointless, photography has pretty much killed painting,” he says, “but graffiti has remained gloriously unspoilt by progress.” Banksy has gained his notoriety through a range of urban interventions, from modifying street signs and printing his own currency to illegally hanging his own works in institutions such as the Louvre and the Museum of Modern Art. Most often using spray paint and stencils, Banksy has crafted a signature, an immediately identifiable graphic style—and a recurring cast of cops, soldiers, children, and celebrities—through which he critically examines contemporary issues of consumerism, political authority, terrorism, and the status of art and its display.

He is an anonymous yet worldwide famous England-based graffiti artist, political activist and film director.

Ă€ PROPOS

đź–Ť Qu'il placarde les murs des villes avec son emblème du rat parachutiste ou qu’il peigne des passages imaginaires sur le mur de sĂ©paration West Bank de Cisjordanie en IsraĂ«l, ou encore qu’il peigne au moyen de pochoirs “We’re bored of fish” sur les enclos de pingouins dans les zoos, Banksy crĂ©e du Street Art par un esprit impertinent et une rĂ©putation internationale dĂ©cuplĂ©e par son anonymat.

“La tĂ©lĂ©vision a rendu le théâtre inutile, la photographie a presque tuĂ© la peinture” dit-il, “mais le graffiti est glorieusement restĂ© prĂ©servĂ© par le progrès.” Banksy a gagnĂ© de la notoriĂ©tĂ© par de nombreuses interventions dans les villes, en modifiant les panneaux dans les rues et imprimant sa propre monnaie pour faire entrer illĂ©galement ses propres oeuvres dans des institutions comme le Louvre et le musĂ©e d’Art Moderne. Il utilise le plus souvent de la peinture Ă  la bombe et au pochoir. Banksy a une signature artistique immĂ©diatement reconnaissable par un graphisme unique - et des oeuvres avec des personnages rĂ©currents de policiers, soldats, enfants et cĂ©lĂ©britĂ©s - Ă  travers lesquels il analyse et critique les questions contemporaines du consumĂ©risme, de l’autoritĂ© politique, du terrorisme et du statut de l’Art et son exposition.
