Banksy shows the flag


Banksy believes that not only blacks should fight racism after George Floyd’s death. At first, he thought that he should just shut up and listen to the blacks on this subject, he wrote on Instagram, but then thought, “Why should I do that? It’s not your problem. It’s mine.” People of Color would be let down by the “white system”.

The famous street artist Banksy could not have foreseen the political chaos in which the British Parliament had been in the Brexit debate until recently. In 2009, his painting “Devolved Parliament” was created on this huge canvas (2.8 x 4.5 meters). The picture was auctioned in London on October 3, 2019 – for £ 9.8 million (around 11 million euros).

An auction at Sotheby’s in London has already caused a coup. After the painting “The Girl with a Balloon” sold for £ 1.2m, it suddenly began to destroy itself. A shredder was hidden in the lower part of the frame. All that was left was snippets. The motif first appeared as a mural in London.

The sum of millions, for which the painting “Devolved Parliament” (2009) has now been auctioned, also triggered criticism. There was no information about the buyer. Banksy himself, who has set up this closed shop with art in London as a current statement, posted after the auction that art had become the property of the rich instead of “being the common property of mankind.”

Banksy is one of the most famous street artists in the world. His true identity is still unclear, at least there is no clear biography about him. Paintings or drawings on paper are rare for him. The British artist anonymously sprays most of his paintings onto house walls, walls and demolition ruins. These works are not for sale.

A recurring theme in his imagery is global predator capitalism. Banksy sprayed this mural in the entrance area of ​​the refugee camp in Calais / southern England.

With this work alone, Banksy interfered in the Brexit debate in the UK in 2017. Overnight, this meter-high image appeared on a wall near the Dover ferry port: a man stands on a ladder and tries to remove one of the EU stars with a hammer and chisel. In the meantime the picture has disappeared from the wall. Someone whitewashed it.

The British street artist has also tackled the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In 2017 Banksy opened a hotel in Bethlehem directly on the barrier wall, which he furnished with his art. He wanted to set a “sign of non-violent resistance”. Since 2005 he has left many works in the historical place. There is already a “Banksy Tour” for tourists.

The identity of Banksy remains a mystery to this day. It is only known that the now world-famous artist comes from Bristol in southern England. He came to London at the end of the 1990s and began spraying his image messages on the walls at specific locations, such as here in an English primary school in Withchurch in 2016.

In his artistic way, Banksy has always been a visionary. In his wall works, he often addressed the political problems of the future, such as global warming. He created this sprayed message, which, however, could not be clearly assigned to Banksy, in London in 2009 – long before US President Trump announced this sentence in all seriousness.

This work was exhibited in a London gallery in 2018 and was not sprayed on a house wall.
