Banksy in Barcelona at Moco Museum

Anonymous. British. Street art. Need we say more? Banksy is one of the most influential artists of our time. Next to that, the elusive street artist has developed an incredible, recognized body of work that carries a political punch! The street artist and activist uses satire and dark humor to unpack topics like anti-war, anti-authority, and environmental and socio-political issues.

As a result, Banksy’s heavy impact on this world unites humans and art lovers - as the street artist’s work connects our collective consciousness. Banksy is a living example that art can change the world.

“If you get tired, learn to rest, not to quit.” – Banksy

Moco Welcome Home

Banksy first presented his remix of Old Master paintings along with 164 live rats in an exhibition titled, “Crude Oils” (2005) in Notting Hill, London. The show featured tainted Monet and Van Gogh replicas overpainted with twisted satires.

The Crude or Corrupted Oil Series in detail features found or preexisting paintings upon which Banksy updates by painting contemporary contexts. A superior example by Banksy in Barcelona, Spain is Home Sweet Home. The aggressive lettering shows that the artist wasted no time to communicate the illusion of, “Home Sweet Home”.

Girl with Balloon & Other Icons

Ultimately, Banksy is renowned for his street art. From large-scale murals to quiet, emotional pieces like Girl with Balloon - on view at Moco Museum Barcelona. Banksy’s art can be found in streets and museums all around the world.

“Be positive, patient, and persistent.” – Banksy

Banksy uses monkeys to remark on what's hilarious and hypocritical about being human. Perhaps monkeys parallel Banksy's rising journey as a street artist - from alleyways to museums? Before, his art was regarded as nothing more than vandalism with style in a world where there were rules, boundaries, and strict definitions of art. Now, street art has arrived and Banksy is the most regarded street artist in the world.

So who's laughing now?

I'm laughing & I'm buying tickets!
