Critical Review

Trolley Hunters is a particularly desirable print as a part of the first UK Trolleys series release and was a total edition run of 650, with 150 being signed Banksy prints. A very small number of signed prints were also a part of the LA edition, available during Banksy’s Barely Legal exhibition. These prints entitled Trolley Hunters (colour) have a slightly different background colour and are highly sought-after.

In Trolley Hunters, Banksy is clearly scolding the ‘West’ for their reliance on mass market commercialism to feed themselves and their families. The scene depicted on the print is a humorous take on such a prescient social critique, showing a group of “hunters” preparing to spear down some shopping carts.. The same critique is formulated in works such as Very Little Helps, showing a group of kids saluting to a Tesco bag flying high as a flag. Along similar themes, Banksy once used marker pen on a piece of stone to replicate cave paintings, showing a primitive hunter pushing a shopping trolley. He then placed the stone in a museum exhibition, which continued to go unnoticed for almost a week.
