Banksy’s street art surprises one. It grabs the eye and attention by juxtaposing contradictory elements that leave some lingering question about what we perceive as inherent reality. His work is a combination of the satirical and subversive.
Surprise and incongruity shake up our perceptions and make us question the “reality” around us. Just think about the last two months and all the images about the uprisings in the Middle East. The protests in Madison Wisconsin were a surprise and who would have imagined the conversation we are having now across the whole country?
