Banksy, the mysterious mischievous anonymous street artist who has produced dozens of 'pieces' of street art, all over the world, has undergone a drastic change of perspective with his latest masterpiece.
The Bristol artist, who regularly creeps out of his house after midnight clad in black, with a plastic bag full of aerosol spray paint cans and stencils, has been the source of numerous nocturnal neo-modernist nothings, and now has a notable cult following.
It's often considered that Banksy is a political activist and present-day would-be social reformer, in the style of Charles Dickens, who used his 'art' - his literary skill - to highlight the unfairness and oppression in society. Banksy, then, attempts to use his 'art' in the same way, but his new work - 'Bowl of Fruit' - is a major departure from his earlier controversial ideas.
The work - three pears on a piece of wood - is bound to be lauded by art critics, who will rave about it, and, no doubt, cream their underpants in appreciation of his creative artistic genius.
Banksy is also said by sources to have been working on several other still life projects, such as 'Vase of Flowers', and 'A Countryside Scene with Horses', as well as several other unnamed pieces, which will have a similar 'hoodwinking' effect.
