  • 'Banksy 'Life is Beautiful' Triptych Gallery Wrapped Canvas Wall Art
    overstock.com
    Life is Beautiful' by Banksy gallery wrap on archival quality canvas using Epson Ultra-Chrome inks and pine wood frames. Banksy's art delivered once again with a visually stunning mural painting on a wall on West Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. The piece features a close-up profile of the pretty face of a Billie Holiday, sleeked back black hair, shiny earrings, and a bright rose-colored flower in her hair. Her eyes are shut, and she appears to be singing or yelling with big, bold black letters in all caps written next to her face: LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL. The meaning of the piece is unclear. It is worth noting that there appear to be bars on the wall covering a window between the woman's face and the lettering, which call jail bars to mind, but perhaps the simple message next to the woman's face says it all. Title: Life is Beautiful Artist: Banksy Type: Canvas Art Orientation: Landscape Subject: Culture Type: Canvas Art Style: Modern Framed: Unframed Size: Large The infamous UK guerrilla artist, Banksy, is hitting the streets hard in London, Bristol, Australia, the USA, and just about everywhere in between. It is not only the curiosity of his identity that makes the artist famous, it is his impeccable political pieces and artwork that stir up discussions on the underlying themes. By calling attention to the issues depicted in his pieces, Banksy's controversial work it requires people to think deeply about the issues he is attempting to bring to light. Despite not calling himself an artist, Banksy has been considered by some as talented in that respect; he uses his original street art form, combined with Banksy stencil style. Due to the shroud of secrecy surrounding his real identity and his subversive character, Banksy has achieved somewhat of a cult following with his street art from some of the younger age group within the stenciling community tagging walls and billboards in the dark of night, sneaking around with a secret identity in urban areas leaving his political mark on the world for all to enjoy for free.
