The famed graffiti art I Am Your Father by Banksy plays on science fiction pop culture cleverly. When Darth Vader says to Luke Skywalker: Luke, I am your father. It happened to be one of the most famous phrases of the cinema, in this case Banksy uses an AT-AT and an AT-ST.
At a glance, the print has a childish playfulness, but a closer look reveals much more. Facing each other as if in confrontation, an Imperial Empire AT-ST and AT-AT Walker seem to question one another. The smaller AT-ST with a hovering question mark stands before the towering AT-AT Walker who appears to menace his alleged offspring. The AT-AT’s single stride towards the AT-ST and play on Darth Vader’s infamous revelation to his son Luke Skywalker mirrors the film’s tension. Utilizing black-and-white simplicity, the I Am Your Father art piece possesses a dual meaning too. The play on pop culture is only the surface aspect of the piece. Delving deeper, one questions the plight of a fatherless son meeting his father for the first time. This graphic represents the broken family through the distortion of pop culture, an interpretation that sets I Am Your Father apart from similar Banksy graffiti art.
This clever poster can spice up your collection and can be a good gift for friends and family.
