Trolleys (Black and White)
Banksy was the first UK graffiti artist to successfully straddle the divide between street and fine art. Having initially built his reputation on a series of high profile public stunts, such as installing his own painting into the Tate Museum, Banksy has become a worldwide phenomenon and the leader of the street art movement. He started making editioned prints in 2002 and created over 50 in an 8 year period. His wit, humour and message have connected with a large international audience and he has become one of the hottest and most important living contemporary artists in the world.
Furthering his critique on society and taking a stance on consumerism, this work comically depicts tribal hunters "hunting" for grocery shopping carts. Here, Banksy questions the impact of westernization through the juxtaposition of conflicting imagery, thus altering the viewer’s perception of consumer culture through role reversals. This print is sold on consignment, framed and in excellent condition. Please note this is from the numbered edition of 500 (there was also a signed edition of 150). It comes with the COA from Pest Control.
