Canvas Print Description

Banksy’s "Injured Buddha‘first appeared at the memorable ‘Cans Festival’ in London in 2008. The lengthy exhibition of street art and graffiti work was held in a disused tunnel beneath London’s Waterloo Station. Designated by the local council as an area for graffiti artists to try their hand, the expansive subterranean space became known as ‘Banksy’s Tunnel’. "Injured Buddha"is a perfect example of Banksy’s iconographic style, and his irreverent brand of political and social commentary. In a deeply decorated niche, the revered Buddha is seen sitting in his usual contemplative stance. This devotional image of inner peace and spiritual bliss is interrupted by the bandages, bruises, and scrapes that cover the body of the figure. Usually a symbol of sanctity and meditation, Banksy’s Buddha has found himself dug into an alcove beneath a London street, a victim of a sudden bout of urban violence. As with many Banksy works, the piece can be read as both a simple act of iconoclasm — turning a familiar image on its head — and as a nod to wide-ranging political crises. The horrific destruction of the Buddhas of Bamiyan by the Taliban in 2001 and the continued violence in Myanmar and Burma between Muslims and Buddhists have seen the usually serene devoted followers cast as both the subjects and the perpetrators of extreme violence. Banksy almost certainly intended the piece to be a mere reversal of public understanding of the Buddha, but his "Injured Buddha"is more than just a provocative poke at religious followers and hippy weekend-Buddhists.
