The London Olympics start in two days and Banksy is taking full advantage of the media circus that has invaded his country. Two new pieces of his distinct artwork have just been spotted in his hometown of Bristol and more are expected to be discovered as the 2012 Olympic Games begin. The first work of art depicts a javelin thrower that is hurling a missile instead of the usual pole. The second image is of a pole vaulter that is seemingly trying to escape over an actual barbed-wire fence. Although many people consider Banksy to be distasteful, one can’t argue with the fact that he is extremely creative and consistently produces art unlike any we’ve seen before. You would think that after so many years he would run out of ideas but he’s constantly innovating his technique and pushing barriers that make the public actually think about his street art. With the games about to commence, I expect there to be a lot more Banksy art in the woodwork that features his usual witty satire.
