The guideline for this week’s photo challenge from Ben is as follows:
“This week, share a photo of a satisfying pairing from your own life. You should by no means limit yourself to edible stuff — You can mix and match places, people, objects, and activities that represent your idea of a harmonious, pleasing combination.”
And no better man to ‘mix n match’ people and/or objects and/or anything else you care to mention than artist Banksy. MB has used a Banksy shot or two in previous weeks challenges, from his visit with daughter MB2 to the Moco Museum in Amsterdam in November 2016, which featured a Banksy/Warhol exhibition.
MB has tried to look up this painting online to find an explanation. ‘A painting on a painting’ was the only description MB could find, so he remains in the dark as to any deeper meaning. Maybe it’s just a piss-take on art generally. MB will very much welcome the thoughts of HX followers in this regard.
However, who but the artist himself can really shine a light? So Mr Banksy, assuming you are a follower of MB’s HX blog (and if you’re not you certainly should be!!!), please tell MB WTF this painting is about???!!! MB can clearly see that it’s got ‘a good match’, but apart from that………………………..
Great readinng your post
I’m no art expert, but I think this painting is about arsonist mice with matches looking to burn thatches. 🙂
Correction HM. You are an art expert. Who but an art expert could come up with the phrase ‘arsonist mice’?!!!

I find that people often underestimate the destructiveness of mice, MB. 🙂
