Rats are one of Banksy’s most prolific subjects and can take on many personas. Anagram for ‘art’, the rat is Banksy’s most valuable artistic tool to criticise the human race and stand up for the ones suffering from injustice. They are given human characteristics and attitude and are shown in comical situations so as to evoke human flaws and vices.
The figure of the rat can also be associated to the artist himself as both are chased by the authorities and generally act by night.
