Banksy, speculated to have been born in 1974, and brought up in Bristol, England always preferred to be away from the limelight and maintains his anonymity to date. He maintains a theme of political mockery and dark humour in most of his art works. He is said to have been significantly influenced by the Bristol underground scene, which was a cultural blend of art and music at that time. He portrayed his art on public viewpoints such as walls and went as far as to even build physical props to portray his art.
Banksy’s art is a colour play of emotions mixed with satire, and largely condemns political issues. Even though dark-themed, the vibrance of his artwork is striking, and his art captures one’s eyes and even more, the heart.
This vividity and the thoughtfulness behind his work make for a good wall sticker theme, especially on contrasting walls. They make for an attractive focal point in any room, and for this very reason, is being a well sought-after wall sticker in the market. There are a number of sites which make these wall stickers available for purchase, and a number of his renowned works, such as the girl with balloon, throwing flowers, panda and such are available as wall stickers. The girl with the balloon in particular is a typical Banksy art , as it captures minds over eyes with its multitude of inner meanings that he conveys to viewers, such as loss, hope, innocence, love and many other such realms to think on.
While many maintain different perspectives about home décor, and their concepts about wall stickers may vary as ever, it goes undoubtedly as a fact that Banksy’s work, being recognized and etched into the hearts of many, and more, will be able to attract eyes within the walls and even, evoke food for thought. Rather than the charm or vibrance of graffiti art, it may perhaps be his ability to capture eyes and hearts with the vividity of his themes that sets him one apart from the ever so many graffiti artists out there.
