10. Let Them Eat Crack, 2008
Banksy’s enormous Street Rat: Let Them Eat Crack was created in 2008 in New York’s SoHo neighbourhood. The vast piece, which took up a large portion of a side of the New York building, was created with a permit from the city of New York. The Bristol artist took on Marie Antoinette’s quote “Let them eat cake,” which was referencing French peasants, with Banksy’s particular spin instead, being “Let them eat crack,” voicing Wall Street’s views towards the middle and lower classes.
