Famed English street artist Banksy has created two pieces in response to the London Olympics, reports The Fox Is Black. The two paintings appeared to have been crafted using his renowned stencil style, featuring athletes in a demonstration of their athletic power. One shows a man about to throw what appears to be a javelin, but is actually a missile. The second painting features a man performing a high jump, which is made to look like he’s jumping over a fence and onto an abandoned mattress. Interpretation on what they mean is open for discussion, but using a missile as a javelin seems to reflect the potential for danger at the London Olympics.
What do you think of this works of art? What is Banksy trying to say about the upcoming Olympic Games?
