'Suit Up Trooper II' is an original artwork by Mariano, a Buenos Aires-born, Brooklyn-based street artist known by his tag BNS.
'Suit Up Trooper II' is part of a triptych consisting of three individual panels that work both as a set and individually. Darth Vader, Boba Fett and a Storm Trooper got their dress code on point. In the background of each of these pieces there are actual newsprints from NY | THE SUN edition of 1909 advertising suits and other gentlemen’s outfits from that time. There are also some layers that run through the three pieces connecting them, such as the image of the pyramid with the all seeing eye.
BNS draws inspiration from the energy of the city context in which he has always lived, be it Buenos Aires, New York or more recently Barcelona. Through his murals in urban spaces he is continuously leaving a vibrant imprint in the public space, letting his work flow on, as well as off, the streets.
