Critical Review

Rats frequently appear in Banksy’s artworks and have become one of the artist’s signature motifs. Rats are often used by Banksy to represent the masses or the working class. Rat imagery is used by Banksy as a metaphor for the potential uprising of the masses which reflects Banksy’s anti-establishment values.

Discussing his use of rats, Banksy explains “Like most people I have a fantasy that all the little powerless losers will gang up together. That all vermin will get some good equipment and then the underground will go overground and tear this city apart”.
