Perhaps one of mysterious graffiti artist Banksys most iconic works is his famed Monkey Detonator piece. The piece shows a monkey about to jump on a detonator, presumably to ignite some sort of bomb. As is usually the case with an artistic genius like Banksy, everything is beautifully drawn. From the detonator to the monkey itself, the anonymous artists signature style really shines through.
Monkey TNT Detonator by Banksy is a piece that can be interpreted in many different ways by many different people. Some may see it as showing that recklessness can only lead to disaster, and some may see it as a symbol of living life to the fullest, and having fun at every opportunity, no matter the consequences.
Although the artwork is very simple, one cannot help but be entranced by the brilliance in its simplicity. The flesh and black colors of the monkey fit so well with the yellow detonator, a play on the fondness of monkeys for bananas.
