Combining dark humour with the distinctive stencilling technique he reportedly appropriated from the serial number stencilled on the garbage truck he hid under once from the police; Banksy’s artistic works of political and social commentary have appeared on city walls throughout the world – from New York to the Gaza Strip. Whilst his identity still remains unknown (though there have been numerous attempts to reveal it, he has been ‘outed’ as a member of Massive Attack and a one Robin Gunningham), the on-going media coverage that surrounds his street and wall art has transformed his artwork from graffiti to highly sought-after pieces, transforming him into one of Britain’s most expensive living artists.
In October 2013, Banksy began a 1-month residency in New York. This residency consisted of creating satirical pieces of art around the city. Almost before the paint had dried, private building owners who had received a Banksy tag were making plans to exhibit and sell the artworks. This Banksy hysteria is replicated around the world (in Bristol one of his murals was sold “with a house attached”,) with not only his street art, but also his limited edition prints. Extremely rare, original prints (like that of Girl With Balloon) attract an army of avid collectors who constantly search for the next opportunity to buy his artwork.
