This is a piece of Conceptual Art
This is an unofficial Party Political Broadcast by the Green Party.
The ready-made stainless steel “Can” has the words "Keep GB Tidy" is to highlight the Anti-Litter Campaign by the Green Party in which waste, rubbish, garbage (cans, shopping trolleys, white goods, furniture etc.) is illegally disposed of in Green spaces in Great Britain, such as Green Parks, Rivers, Countryside etc. The waste, rubbish, garbage looks out of place, and costs, the Local Council's (Government) money, which could be used for better causes. The "Can" has been placed on a Green background similar to the Green countryside, juxtapose. "Keep GB Tidy", pick up your Rubbish and dispose of in an appropriate place!
Green Party colours of Green have been used as the background, and Green for the text.
Inspired by Banksy's work "Show me the Monet" (see the last image)
The Artist would take a ready-made “Can” remove it’s Label, to reveal the Stainless Steel Can underneath, and re-label with a Satirical character words, to highlight an issue of the day, inspired by satirical & comedy puppet TV series, Newzoids (2015-present) and previously Spitting Image (1984-1996) on UK Television.
This artwork has been inspired by the previous works in the “Back to Basics: Cans” series of works, and the previous work “Back to Basic: Anti Consumerism Cans (2009)” (see last image and link below)
