In 2007, Banksy issued this signed screen print edition of 150 called Sale Ends. The artwork humorously mocks commercial brands as contemporary gods and our excessive focus on consumerism. The series portrays four figures mimicking a Lamentation of Christ painting, with a red "SALE ENDS TODAY" sign replacing Jesus.
Sale Ends was first created in 2006 for Banksy’s iconic American show ‘Barely Legal’, which took place in a warehouse in Los Angeles in September 2006. It features a group of cloaked women rendered in Banksy’s signature black and white stencil style, prostrated beneath a large red sign saying “Sale Ends Today”, which is the central and only coloured element on this print. The image can be interpreted as an ironic statement on the glorified, hegemonic status of capitalism and the market, commenting on the nearly religious nature of sales and of consumer goods worshipped by the masses.
Part of the ‘Barely Legal Print Set’ series, the work was originally made as an edition of 100 unsigned prints and sold at the show for $500 apiece. Further prints in the series included Morons, Applause, Trolleys, Grannies and Festival. This series together to be one of the rarest and most valuable collections of street art on the market.
Sale Ends v2 was released as a part of Pictures on Walls’ closing down sale in 2017, during which they released a few remaining print editions.
