Peter Kennard

sg_2006_peter_kennard

This is an image from an artist whose work I was introduced to today called Peter Kennard, a lot of his work is similar to the now world famous street artist Banksy. Both Banksy and Peter Kennard have a fantastic ability to create an image with instant impact that can shock and amuse whilst commenting with precision on a political situation or an aspect of society.

I am from Bristol, Banksy’s home town, and his work is unavoidable to residents of the city. What was originally deemed as dirty, unworthy street art is now treasured by the council and loved dearly by the public. I intend to write a full review of his summer show on here, keep an eye out.
