It makes one stop and think about the two sides of the conflict and how the other is perceived by each side. This image seems to suggest that Palestinians believe that life on the other side of the wall is more peaceful and fruitful, without considering their own stance in life.

Banksy, as a example of both a contemporary artist and a street artists, makes one wonder about how art can influence society. Do spray-painted images such as the one above really make people stop and reflect on the issues it addresses? In terms of a topic, I may want to learn more about contemporary street art and it’s impact on society. It would also be interesting to focus on Banksy as an example of an activist who is trying to bring about change through a medium we have not looked at yet-art.

Here are some of Banksy’s his sayings:

We can’t do anything to change the world until capitalism crumbles. In the meantime we should all go shopping to console ourselves.

When you go to an art gallery you are simply a tourist looking at the trophy cabinet of a few millionaires.

Sometimes I feel so sick at the state of the world I can’t even finish my second apple pie.

Think from outside the box, collapse the box and take a f***ing knife to it.

Some people become vandals because they want to make the world a better looking place.

If you want someone to be ignored, then build a life-size bronze statue of them and stick it in the middle of town.
