Critical Review

Banksy’s Kate Moss prints are a direct response to Pop Art figurehead, Andy Warhol.

First produced in 2003 in a limited light blue edition of 50, these Banksy prints were released in another series of 120 shortly afterwards in six more colours pink, hot pink, purple, green, apricot/gold and blue/grey), with 20 of each variation. Banksy also edited a very limited series of 12 artist’s proofs as well as five reproductions on canvas.

All pieces are signed by the artist, and 2011, Banksy reportedly created a unique edition for Kate Moss herself as a wedding gift. Story has it that on her honeymoon, she was surprised to find the artwork in her hotel bathroom waiting for her. Banksy combines the faces of Moss and Marilyn Monroe, superimposing Monroe’s hair onto a grey-scale portrait of Moss, creating, like many of his other works, both a glorification of fame and a satirical comment on it as a spectacle.

Besides Warhol, Banksy has also paid tribute to a number of other modern artists most notably including Keith Haring in Choose Your Weapon.
