Banksy: I can’t believe you morons actually buy this sh*t

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 18 settembre 2019

London Online sale is open for bidding from 11-24 September 2019, the first dedicated online auction of Banksy editions at Christie’s featuring thirty editions by the anonymous and notorious street-artist. The sale is titled in homage to the artist’s Morons (Sepia) screenprint (2007, estimate: £12,000-18,000), which parodies a photograph of the record-breaking Christie’s sale of Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers in 1987, with van Gogh’s canvas replaced by Banksy’s text. Highlights of the sale will be on view at Christie’s King Street, London, from 14-17 September 2019. The sale is led by an extremely rare artist’s proof of Girl with Balloon – Colour AP (Gold) (2004, estimate: £150,000-250,000). Banksy’s Girl with Balloon initially appeared as a series of stencil murals sprayed in various locations across London, with the first example appearing on the steps of Waterloo Bridge on the Southbank in 2002. The subsequent screenprint of this iconic artwork is perhaps the most desirable of Banksy’s editions. The image of the girl with the red balloon is synonymous with Banksy, but there were a limited number of signed artist’s proofs made in other colour variations of purple, blue, pink and gold, although these are extremely rare, and this is the first time that any colour variant will be offered at auction. The online sale also features the famous version of the image with a red balloon, Girl with Balloon (2004, estimate: £50,000-70,000), which was produced in an edition of 150 signed and 600 unsigned impressions.
