Canvas Print Description

Banksy’s early, stenciled canvas “Bombing Middle England” is a droll take on the leisure pursuits of Britain’s ageing population. It is also a witty inversion of the phenomena of the ‘Baby Boomers’, the generation of babies born in the fifteen or so years following World War II. The immense mass of individuals that constitute the generation are becoming an ever-more pressing point of contention for political parties as their mass vote is sought by giddy pollsters and as government economists fret over the sheer size of their combined retirement funds. Outdoor bowls, the game being played by the protagonists in Banksy’s “Bombing Middle England”, has been a leisure activity for the elderly for decades, seeming to sum up the quaint, rolling green of an imagined middle England. In Banksy’s canvas the truth is much darker — the pensioners, with their hats pulled mischievously over their eyes, bowl cartoon bombs down the geometric strip of green. “Bombing Middle England” is also notable for signaling a turning point in the notorious guerilla artist’s career. In 2007 the canvas set a new record for a Banksy piece at auction, selling well beyond its reserve price for over $170,000. Like this auction record, Banksy’s canvas splits Britain in two — on one side are the late inheritors of Britain’s post-war legacy, and on the right the evidence of what they have done with it. For Banksy, as with many counter-cultural British artists and musicians, the wholesome, traditional image of rural Britain is ripe for a graffiti ‘bombing’.
