Canvas Print Description

Always quick to appropriate and reinterpret Biblical lore, Banksy’s “Forgive Us Our Trespassing” turns a line from the Lord’s Prayer on its head. Originally ‘Forgive Us Our Trespasses, As We Forgive Those Who Trespass Against Us’ — a request to excuse our monetary and spiritual debts, as we would expect to forgive those who are in debt to us — Banksy’s slight adaptation turns “Forgive Us Our Trespassing” into a hallowed plea to reclaim the city streets. With many locations off limits to most citizens, the work of street artists has often gone hand in hand with that of urban explorers, who both share the aim of liberating the urban environment and returning it to the people. Indeed, the very act of scaling a wall, hanging precariously from a window, or entering a derelict site to spray a stencil or paint a tag, is invariably a response to a ‘No Trespassing’ culture. “Forgive Us Our Trespassing” first appeared in 2010 to coincide with the artist’s film ‘Exit Through the Gift Shop’. The piece sprung up around the area of Park City and Salt Lake City while the Sundance Film Festival was getting ready to screen the premiere. It is interesting to note that the stencil used for the little boy kneeling in a prayer of forgiveness for his graffiti act is startlingly similar to the one used in his 2011 Stained Glass Window Graffti at the MOCA in LA. The piece also popped up again on the London Underground for its Art Below season. Initially, and with much controversy, the halo surrounding the boy was censored in the fear it would encourage graffiti artists to imitate the dripping style. Yet soon after the halo appeared in the space it was intended and the holy prayer for urban liberation was complete.
