Banksy's 2003 Golf Sale screen-printdepicts a man holding a sign bearing the title text, facing a line of tanks, referencing a famous protest photograph from the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre. The signed edition of 150, in signature black and white stencil style, comments ironically on consumerist society's priorities.
Golf Sale is a highly coveted and powerful screen print by Banksy, showing a man purposefully blocking the path of three military tanks. This act of defiance against authority and militarised control is a familiar theme in Banksy artworks. Golf Sale specifically references Tank Man, the iconic photograph taken in Tiananmen Square in 1989. The image shows a peaceful protest against the Chinese government by a single man, bravely standing in front of the tanks, refusing to allow them to pass.
In the Golf Sale unsigned print, Banksy includes a placard in the protester’s hand, with the words “GOLF SALE” printed on it, atop an arrow pointing in the direction of said sale. In what is thought to be one of his first prints, Banksy criticises and mocks both capitalism and warfare, whilst at the same time paying tribute to the anarchists and activists who protest injustices across the world. Since this work, the notable street artist has expressed similar critiques in artworks such as Happy Choppers, Applauseand Napalm.
