Rainbow Buffalo

This appeared on what used to be a Ritz Photo shop. It is somewhat reminiscent of Banksy (who I should write more about and will soon). Although the image is layered and politically interesting, I think that Banksy manages to capture essence of intent with less ambiguity. Banksy is a British street artist who I equate to the Beatles; all of their work is so simple and so perfect it leaves the world stunned that it's never been done before. This artist is taking on a lot in one graphic (the American Bison, the crippled military? the tie dye...) are they saying that the American military is defunct, or that the hippies are? It's intreguing... and at the very lowest explination "cool", but I'm not really sure of what's going on.
