Turf War is an unsigned screen print on wove paper, released in 2003 as an edition of 600, titled after Banksy’s solo exhibition of the same name, making it a particularly desirable print.
Turf War was released by Banksy in 2003, as an unsigned edition of 750, with 150 signed prints and 600 unsigned prints on wove paper, all of which are in high market demand. The artwork is titled after Banksy's early solo exhibition of the same name, which took place in Dalston (London) in 2003. It features former British Prime Minister and historic war hero Winston Churchill. His familiar face looks out from the canvas with a determined smile across his face. Yet, bizarrely, he sports a bright green mohawk. No longer bald, Churchill has been brought into the punk era by Banksy with a striking new hair style. The bright green hair is the only splash of colour in the print, with the rest in typical black and white, which is a frequent motif used by the artist in his prints. As with many Banksy artworks this image has been co-opted and appears across tote bags, posters, coasters and t-shirts across the web. The title Turf War, seems to suggest that war is little more than just that, a squabble over territory.
