Banksy’s Kate Moss is a 2005 signed screen print on canvas, from a rare edition of 5, based on Andy Warhol’s Marilyn series. Banksy superimposes the 90s supermodel’s recognisable face onto Monroe's hair, colour blocking in homage to Warhol’s bold Pop Art style.
The print comes in an edition size of 5 and pays homage to Andy Warhol's screen prints of the iconic actress and symbol of feminine beauty, Marilyn Monroe. The limited edition screen print was produced in six different colour ways and resonates strongly with Warhol’s Pop Art stye which was characterised by his use of bright and bold colours and the screen printing technique.
In Kate Moss, Banksy borrows Pop Art’s concept of blurring the lines between ‘high’ and ‘low’ art, as well as framing familiar items and images of celebrities from mainstream media as contemporary art. Banksy subverts these ideas even further by appropriating Warhol’s now historic and esteemed visual language.
Banksy is well known for reinterpreting other artists' work. Notable examples of this are Choose Your Weapon featuring Keith Haring’s dog and Keep it Spotless featuring Damien Hirst's quintessential spots. The Kate Moss prints are one of Banksy’s most desirable works for sale, with auction prices for the prints reaching as high as six figures for some works.
In 2011 the Kate Moss series inspired Banksy to create a unique version of the print for Kate Moss herself while she was on her honeymoon. It is not known who commissioned the work but likely to have been someone from Moss’ inner circle.
