Pulp Fiction Bananas by Banksy appeared in London in April of 2007. The artwork was removed by Transport for London as it was deemed too violent. Banksy quickly returned, as did the art.
The ongoing depictions of graffiti art continue to appear throughout London, and authorities continue to remove them, only to find the art reappearing time and time again.
Banksy's graphic prints, informed by his street art origins, are rich in social critique and biting humor. In this screen-print after a large-scale stencil installed at Old Street station in London from 2002 to 2007, he depicts Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta in the 1994 film Pulp Fiction. Bananas replace the gangsters's guns in this ingenious take on an American classic.
Pulp Fiction fans will appreciate the irony of the scene as Travolta and Jackson threaten menacingly with their bananas instead of guns. The graffiti art is an interesting tribute to the outrageous movie, Pulp Fiction.
