Banksy Choose Your Weapon Keith Haring Dog first appeared in London SE1.
The huge difference in the contrast between the man and his dog is a noteworthy contradiction in this Banksy piece.
The man in the art piece represents the disaffected youth that features so prominently in British pop culture. The hooded sweatshirt with the cowl covering the head and bandanna hiding the young man’s face both appear menacing.
The dog is chained and barking loudly. The dog, which pays tribute to Keith Haring’s ‘Barking Dog’, is a man’s best friend – in this case it acts as the man’s weapon. For Banksy, his weapon is his street art. This prints comes in 19 different colours with the original work appearing in London’s Southwark District.
When POW gallery released the prints, many fans who had been queuing in the cold were pushed out the way by carloads of chancers hoping to get prints to sell online. In response Banksy and POW produced a special queue jumpers edition in Grey for those who missed out.
