Strutturated in a rigorously non-commercial manner, Banksy Capitalist Realism is not an immersive reproduction show – a collection of original works that allow all spectators to enter the contemporary world seen with the occhi of a great artist, capable of lasciare
il segno grazie a un messaggio semplice ma di dirompente impatto sulla realtà.

“An’altra grande shows – said the Sindaco di Livorno Luca Salvetti – approda Livorno on the splendid cornice of the Museo della Città ai Bottini dell’Olio. Dopo Modigliani has registered 110 thousand presence in three months, Livorno hosts the operation of the world’s greatest performer della Street Art, the artist Banksy, whose identity is unknown, even if it presupposes that he is English and was born in Bristol in 1974.

GIRL WITH BALLOON La “ragazza con palloncino” è forse l’immagine più populare di Banksy, voted in 2017, in a poll promoted by Samsung, like the opera più amata dai britannici. Banksy painted for the first time Girl with Balloon, with the stencil technique, in a non-commissioned form on a wall next to a bridge in the Southbank area, London, in 2002. The artist signs the operation on an electric cassette, Situated in the basso a destra dell’opera, and accompanied by the image with a text that recites: “C’è semper una hope”.

LOVE IS IN THE AIR Also known by the name of Flower Thrower (Lanciatore di Fiori) apparently for the first round in 2003 as stencil non-commissioned to Gerusalemme, its wall built to separate Israelis and Palestinians in the West Bank area. In the course of this year’s stesso, the edition is carried out by its red background: a young man throwing a fiori mazzo, symbol of an anti-militarist revolution that led the common sense of urban warfare. Love Is In The Air cites and manipulates the imaginary of the attivisti during the university tour that crossed the United States and Great Britain in the Vietnam period, and takes the title of a famous song, published in 1977, by Australian singer John Paul Young.

LOVE RAT I topi sono tra i soggetti più rappresentati da Banksy che su di loro scrive: «Esistono senza permesso. I am hated, braccati and persecuted. I live in a quiet dispersal against sporcizia. Eppure, sono capaci di mettere in ginocchio intere civiltà».
The artist draws a parallel between the tops and the condition of the street artist and is kept on guard against the calm and ambiguous crowds. I topi di Banksy were favored by the imaginary of another street artist, the French Blek Le Rat, who in the corso degli anni Ottanta disseminates around Parigi with a vision similar to that of the British artist. The mole of Love Rat is represented with a large pen in his hand while he has finished pulling the outline of a red heart on an invisible wall. The symbolism suggests that street art – no matter how insignificant it may be sown at first sight – is worthy of love and that questi piccoli contributes that may have a luminous impact on the surrounding community.

TOXIC MARY/VIRGIN MARY Virgin Mary is also noted as Toxic Mary because of the candle symbol on the bottle. Secondo alcuni l’immagine presents a harsh criticism of the ruolo della Religione nella Storia; secondo altri è a critique of the way in which we are educating and our children. L’opera rende a Madonna con Bambino nello stile del Rinascimento. L’immagine presents delle colature che riportano un elemento peculiaredella street art. It is a typical popular image that Banksy used to take a “détournement”. If it deals with a process that allows you to enjoy immagini, it will crystallize in your memory, manipulating it and placing elements that do not in crisis have an acquired meaning. L’opera is presented at the first round in 2003 as a stencil artist for her canvas at the Corso della Turf War show.

BOMB HUGGER è un’immagine che parla di guerra e quindi attualissima. There is an official title and one adopted by the public: the official title is Bomb Love. Tuttavia il publico ha accolto como Bomb Hugger, ovvero, colei che abbraccia la bomba. The image is published in 750 serigraphic copies of Pictures On Walls, taken during the demonstrations in Great Britain to criticize the joint intervention with the USA against Iraq. Her uno sfondo rosa pop, una bambina abbraccia a bomba come se ella stesse abbracciado un orsacchiotto. The artist is talking about the war in the fornite version of the rulers and the media in the scope of giustificare l’attacco all’Iraq, of course, a war to “sport democracy”. The image is reproduced in various formats, it appears sui muri di città europee tra cui Berlino, made a stencil ma anche su cartelli distribuiti al publico in occasione delle proteste antimilitariste. Starting around 2000, Banksy documents some Bomb Hugger in monochrome stencil his public wall in 2003, made in the area of ​​London and near Brighton.
