Early prints and paintings by Banksy

  • by

Street artist Bansky has been surprising the world since the 90’s. From then on Banksy’s silkscreen prints and stencil paintings were racking up record-breaking sales in storied art auctions such as Sotheby’s and Bonham’s of London. These successful sales marked Banksy’s entry into the commercial art world.

For this article, we are sharing Banksy’s less mainstream paintings and prints mostly dating in the 90’s and early 2000’s.

Banksy’s “Girl with Balloon (Diptych)” is Unveiled in London

  • by

Unveiled in London on 1 October, Banksy’s Girl with Balloon (Diptych) (2005, estimate: £2,500,000-3,500,000) will highlight Christie’s 20th / 21st Century: Evening Sale Including Thinking Italian, London on 15 October 2021. A poignant two-part version of what is perhaps Banksy’s most iconic image, Girl with Balloon (Diptych) is a vision of innocence and hope. The work consists of two canvases, each on an intimate 30 x 30 cm scale. In one stands a small girl, stencilled in black against the white background, with her hand upraised; in the other, a red, heart-shaped balloon drifts away into the sky. Created in 2005, one year after the Girl with Balloon motif appeared on London’s South Bank, the diptych heightens the simple pathos of Banksy’s composition: the balloon has escaped from one panel into another, and the space between the two is palpable.  In 2017, Banksy’s Girl with Balloon was voted the nation’s favourite artwork.

“Banksy: I can’t believe you morons actually buy this sh*t” and The Prints & Multiples skyrocketing sales

  • by

The Prints & Multiples and ‘Banksy: I can’t believe you morons actually buy this sh*t’ online sales realised a total of £4,879,125/$6,734,926/€5,694,067.

Banksy: I can’t believe you morons actually buy this sh*t’ is cheekily titled in homage to the artist’s Morons screenprint. The source image of this work is a photograph of the record-breaking sale of Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers at Christie’s in 1987, with van Gogh’s canvas replaced by Banksy’s text.

“Slick” early graffitis by Banksy in the 1990’s – 2000’s

  • by

Banksy’s satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humour with graffiti executed in a distinctive stenciling technique. This particular style is usually recognised easily by people as his trademark. Most of Banksy’s pieces nowadays can be described as bold and striking with the abundance of blacks (and spot colours on occasion). His vibrant murals when he was just a starting freehand graffiti artist are lesser known to the public.

For this post, we’ve compiled a selection of Banksy’s earliest works created before he became famous for his stencil pieces.
