Let Them Eat Crack (2008)

The Let Them Eat Crack artwork created by Banksy is considered to be the country’s enormous Street Rat. It is located in New York and was produced way back in 2008. This masterpiece is huge, which takes up the vast area of the New York building. For those who are asking about the art permission, New York City gives their permission for Banksy to create this enormous artwork. The title of his artwork was taken from the famous quotation of Marie Antoinette, “Let them eat cake.”

The Flower Thrower (2003)

Among the other artworks created by Banksy, The Flower Thrower is one of the famous artworks created by the street artist. He painted a subject that looks like a person who gets involved in trouble, who is wearing a backward cap and a handkerchief with a bouquet planning to throw it. The whole artwork was produced in black and white. But the bouquet was colored with yellow and red. Many artists re-worked Banksy’s artwork in the form of tattoos, T-shirts, mobile phone cases, prints, and many others.

Migrant Birds (2004)

The Migrant Birds that was created by Banksy way back in 2004 is a form of stencil painting. The Clacton Council eliminated his artwork because some people who have seen it are complaining about racism. The stencil painting shows several pigeons that hold an anti-immigration banner.

This mural can be seen in Clacton-on-Sea’s seaside town, which is a key political area. Some people think that this painting shows racism because a bird is resting alone while the number of pigeons is holding racism-related words. That’s why it was eliminated. But all in all, this artwork of Banksy is controversial yet looks beautifully.

Sweeping It Under The Carpet (2006)

The Sweeping It Under The Carpet that was created by Banksy in 2006 was located in Chalk Farm, London initially. Many people who have seen it concluded that the artwork shows the reluctance of the government tackling the Aids problems in Africa. According to the website owned and managed by Banksy, he stated that “In the bad old days, it was only popes and princes who had the money to pay for their portraits to be painted. This is a portrait of a maid called Leanne who cleaned my room in a Los Angeles motel. She was quite a feisty lady.”

One Nation Under CCTV (2008)

The One Nation Under CCTV by Banksy was removed already. But despite that, this is one of the most-known artworks created by him. This piece was written to a large wall in London. This is a commentary artwork about the surveillance-captured society in the United Kingdom. Some people conclude that it shows the watchful security guard and the child-sized artist.
