Banksy’s work shows a famous scene from the iconic Quentin Tarantino’s film Pulp Fiction where the two protagonists, Samuel L Jackson and John Travolta are holding bright bananas instead of guns. This work first appeared in 2002 as a stencil composition in the streets of London, near Old Street tube station.

It had been visible until 2007, when the Transport for London painted over the original street art piece, citing that it contributed to an image of the neighborhood as violent and decaying. When a local artist sprayed-painted the words « Come Back » addressed to Banksy, he re-painted his original street piece at the exact same place but this time the characters were holding pistols and were wearing banana costumes.

Young graffiti artist Ozone wrote over Banksy’s new piece the words « If it’s better next time I’ll leave it ». Sadly the 19-year-old artist passed away a few days afterwards hit by an underground train. Banksy made a tribute artwork over his second Pulp Fiction mural, depicting an angel wearing a bulletproof vest.

Whether plastering cities with his trademark parachuting rat, painting imagined openings in the West Bank barrier in Israel, or stenciling “We’re bored of fish” above a penguins’ zoo enclosure, Banksy creates street art with an irreverent wit and an international reputation that precedes his anonymous identity. “TV has made going to the theatre seem pointless, photography has pretty much killed painting,” he says, “but graffiti has remained gloriously unspoilt by progress.” Banksy has gained his notoriety through a range of urban interventions, from modifying street signs and printing his own currency to illegally hanging his own works in institutions such as the Louvre and the Museum of Modern Art. Most often using spray paint and stencils, Banksy has crafted a signature, immediately identifiable graphic style—and a recurring cast of cops, soldiers, children, and celebrities—through which he critically examines contemporary issues of consumerism, political authority, terrorism, and the status of art and its display.
