    The artwork ‘Grannies’ by Banksy portrays two elderly ladies knitting jumpers and drinking tea, with a picture frame in the background, maybe of their children or grandchildren. At first glance, the painting might seem like an ordinary depiction of everyday life, but upon closer inspection, it is evident that it conveys a message of rebellion and defiance.

    The text on the jumpers the ladies are knitting are unlikely slogans such as “Punks Not Dead” and “Thug For Life”. The contrast between the scene and the message is humorous and thought-provoking. It challenges viewers to consider their assumptions about older people and their lifestyles. It encourages people to think about the rebellious pasts of the older generation and to consider the importance of passing down acts of defiance like punk and thug culture to future generations.

    Banksy has mastered using black-and-white stencils and a block pink background in the artwork. This heightens the humorous contradiction between scene and message and draws attention to the idea that appearances are deceptive. Although they may seem harmless, the older ladies’ sassy declaration of rebellion and resistance speaks volumes: “Once a Rebel, Always a Rebel.”
