Weston Super Mare is a signed screen print in colour released in 2003 as an edition of 8, and is among the earliest prints by Banksy.
Weston Super Mare by Banksy depicts a senior citizen seated on a park bench, their hands folded in their lap, and their cane rested on the bench beside them. The subject looks to be enjoying the solitude, completely oblivious to the large rotating bandsaw that is tearing up the earth as it races towards them. The original painting on canvas, exhibited in Bristol in 2000, featured a block blue sky, and the elderly subject sporting a green jacket.
This artwork appears to suggest that, even the very comfortable among us in your average British seaside town, still have the terrifying prospect of death rushing towards us. Weston Super Mare was also the location of Banksy's 2015 'experience' Dismaland which is said to have attracted over 150,000 visitors.
