Banksy's 2004 Pulp Fiction unsigned screen print edition of 600 is a playful, monochromatic reimagination of Quentin Tarantino’s neo-noir classic. Substituting John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson’s guns for yellow bananas as weapons, Banksy offers a quirky take on the cultish nature of film and art.
Pulp Fiction is a bold, striking black and white piece clearly informed by the neo-noir aesthetic of Quentin Tarantino’s 1994 cult film of the same title. The artwork shows Pulp Fiction actors John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson pointing bright yellow bananas at an out of shot antagonist. Naturally, in the film these were guns, and through this interpretation Banksy formulates an anti-gun and anti-violence statement by using popular culture and American cult film as a context. The film Pulp Fiction, as well as Tarantino’s oeuvre and style as a whole is famous for excessive violence, and so with this print Banksy might just be commenting on the ridiculousness of that in itself. Other famous artworks, such as CND Soldiers showing a couple of soldiers painting a bright red peace sign, as well as Love Is In The Air depicting a masked protester throwing a bouquet of flowers, express a similarly powerful call for peaceful resolutions of conflict.
