A Fine art studio in Villach, Austria is calling on Banksy to help solve the increase in knife crime in London. Meisterdrucke Fine Arts, who supplies fine art around the world believe that art can provide a calming influence and feel Banksy could use his reputation and street art to bring calm to the streets of London.
The team at Meisterdrucke Fine Arts would like to see Banksy make some form of a statement on the increase in knife crime and use his influence to call on the gangs in London to put down the knives and use their energy through creative art. The fine arts experts would also like to see Banksy work with local community groups and the Mayor of London to set up street art classes to provide people with a positive output for their energy.
London’s knife-crime epidemic continues to get out of control with 130 recorded this year, compared with 132 in 2018. Over the past few years, many experts have come forward to reveal why they feel knife crime continues to increase which includes high unemployment, poverty, and lack of guidance, but no one has come forward with a positive solution. Meisterdrucke Fine Arts believes the solution could be through Banksy street art and through his positive influence on others.
Art is already used to help millions of people around the world. It can help seniors improve their quality of life, relieve stress, encourage creative thinking, help to deal with PTSD, and boost self-esteem to name a few. However, Meisterdrucke Fine Arts believe creative art can help to deal with the growing violence on the streets and provide the youth of today with an avenue to express themselves rather than use violence.
Meisterdrucke Fine Arts wants Banksy to come forward in some shape or form and motivate the youth of today to say no to knife crime and give them a positive path. They hope that Banksy will make a video and create an art piece to denounce knife crime.
