One of the main reasons why I love Banksy so much is probably because his art always has a deeply political/thought-provoking message attached to it and the latest offering up from the un-named street artist is no different.
Banksy posted a video of rebels shooting a rather unsuspecting Dumbo The Elephant out of the sky accompanied by the caption:
‘I’m not posting any pictures today. Not after this shocking footage has emerged…’
To me it’s about the effect of war on youthful innocence, but you it may just be a video of a cartoon elephant being shot out of the sky by guns and rockets. It’s going to interesting to see how he goes on to use mediums outside of the traditional stencil based applications and 3D installs of the past to get his messages across to the World.
