Condition A. Paper. Framed.
Banksy is the most famous living artist whose actual identity remains a secret. In the mid-1990s, his artistic reputation began to rise. A master of street art and provocation, his work reverberates politically and socially. In addition to wall art, he also works in the mediums of painting, posters, film (Exit Through the Gift Shop, 2010) and even whole-scale architectural installation (Dismaland, 2015). Despite, or perhaps because he so flagrantly mocks the art market, his works have continued to rise in value. As the artist himself stated, "It's definitely boom time in the discontent industry." His poster designs have the added benefit of making his work attainable for his legions of fans. This poster for Greenpeace uses the unimaginable demise of beloved Disney characters from The Jungle Book to highlight illegal logging and deforestation." Banksy p. 161.
