Banksy Hates Mondays
Don't we all.
But this piece is clearly a commentary on modern culture's obsession with the trivial. Banksy uses a modern annoyance that everyone can relate to and contrasts it with how some people around the world are struggling for survival.
Powerful piece that really leaves the viewer almost feeling guilty after engaging with it.
And the fact that the message is on a novelty shirt in the Third World is also humorous and gives the piece more credence, as some really ironic t-shirts end up there--like t-shirts touting the wrong team to win a Super Bowl, or the World Series.
And this appears to be a painting from Banksy, and not a stencil or paste.
