Banksy Death Art It's startling, but there is a point to it. Banksy often touches on very political subjects - to raise awareness about what is truly going on in society. But it is easy to interpret his work to mean other things. For example - this piece focuses on children and their innocence (depicted through the pink butterflies - which are predominantly used to represent blood and death) but also war and culpability through suicide.
I think this poster is trying to show that people of a higher importance or status such as the government grow to be very successful and are only out to protect them selfs because in the poster the man wearing the business suit has a gas mask cover his face protecting him where as we are left in all the pollution. Also the fact that the city is on top of his head almost a part of him suggests he is in control. -Lenai Clarke
A Banksy piece tackling immigration has been scrubbed from a wall in Essex after the council, without knowing who had drawn it, responded to a complaint that it was “offensive”. (Even though it is a Banksy, it's the message they scrubbed away!)
