Flying Copper by Banksy
Arguably the most controversial street artist in the world, Banksy’s art can impact any location at any given moment.
Smiling Copper police officer, dressed in full riot gear, with the guise of an iconic, yellow smiley face, is a satirical contract between what is associated with happiness, the smile, and the starkness of militarized control. The small, delicate white wings on his back sharply contrast the cold, gray helmet and gun, their size hardly strong enough to lift a grown man out of harms way.
Angels are generally associated with peace and seen as guardians or protectors as well.
Banksy’s artwork has appeared throughout London and other locations around the world. Bansky’s artwork is characterized by striking images, often combined with slogans. His work regularly engages political themes, satirically critiquing war, capitalism, hypocrisy and greed. Common subjects include rats, apes, policemen, members of the royal family, and children. In addition to his two-dimensional work, Banksy is known for his installation artwork.
Flying Copper made its first appearance in 2003/2004.
