Pulp Fiction Bananas by the most popular street artist Banksy
Pulp Fiction Bananas – a series of works by Banksy, first appeared as graffiti, which eventually turned into one of the most popular images, stencils and prints of his authorship. Banksy is the most popular and mystical British street artist.
The drawing shows John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson in their images from the Tarantino film “Pulp Fiction”, only instead of weapons, the characters grievously hold bright, juicy bananas – the only color accent of the black-and-white work. Pulp fiction itself is a satirical story interpreting excessive violence. Many fans of the work appreciated the irony of Banksy’s interpretation.
The piece of art lasted until April 2007, when it was erased due to the violence reproduced on it and the negative impact on people. Its cost then was 300 thousand pounds. In December 2011, a chain of hotels in Australia organized a campaign offering to steal the stencil image, but it was eventually transferred to the organization to fight crime, from where it was sent to auction. In 2012, it was sold for 10.6 thousand pounds.
