A biting satire on the inability of modern man to provide for himself, Trolleys – or Trolley Hunters as it is also known – is a screenprint by celebrated street artist Banksy. It depicts three cavemen bearing primitive weapons and crouched in the act of hunting a herd of supermarket trolleys.

The artwork was released in various editions. The first was produced in 2005 for Banksy’s iconic Barely Legal exhibition in Los Angeles, known as Trolley Hunters Los Angeles Edition (Black & White) with 150 signed and 500 unsigned prints. Trolleys was also a part of Banksy’s Barely Legal Print Set, a series of six prints which includes the works Applause, Festival, Grannies, Morons and Sale Ends, and which were sold at $500 a piece.

In 2007, Trolleys was re-released by Pictures on Walls of London in three different formats: 750 signed colour prints in a blue and yellow colourway, 500 unsigned white prints and 150 signed white prints . The UK release differs slightly to the LA edition; in the original Modern Multiples edition the caveman on the right holds a hammer made from wood with a pointed piece of stone while the later Pictures On Walls edition shows the man holding a spear instead.

In the same year, Banksy made a special edition of Trolleys for his 2007 Santa’s Ghetto pop-up shop in Bethlehem. Trolley Hunters (Bethlehem Edition) was released as 28 signed editions, printed on packaging paper.
