Choose Your Weapon (VIP Edition)

Banksy

In this image, entitled “Choose your weapon” it is not always easy or clear to see what the most dangerous or destructive entity is. On one level the “weapon” could be the dog itself, its aggressiveness highlighted by jagged, spiky ears and stiff, pointed legs. On the other hand, the chain attached to the dog or even a possibly hidden armament in the man’s pocket could also inflict damage on someone. With all this said, the symbol of greatest abrasion is in fact the dog’s bark which is visually represented by black speech marks coming out of its mouth – imitating the signature style of works by artist Keith Haring, who was very popular during the 1980’s.
