Arguably the most controversial street artist in the world, Banksy has developed an entire art subculture devoted to his works. Banksy’s art can impact any location at any given moment. His identity remains unknown, even after over 30 years of being involved with the graffiti scene.
Banksy’s silkscreen prints and stencil paintings have racked up record-breaking sales in storied art auctions such as Sotheby’s and Bonham’s of London. These successful sales officially broke him into the commercial business.
As controversial as he is famous, Banksy is more than just a graffiti artist. His works have become symbolic of an underworld that is unhappy with the way the elite run the global economy and politics.
Here at the Lyons Gallery, we have several prints representing the famous Banksy art that has become part of the art world, bringing an entire subculture of street art to the same stage as fine art from Renaissance painters. Established art auction houses like Sotheby’s have seen Banksy art sell for millions. Our gallery has always been about creating installations and exhibitions for our featured artists, so it is no surprise that we have worked hard to find some great examples of Banksy art prints for our clients.
Find out more about the enigmatic Banksy and the art we have to share below.
Despite more than 30 years in the street art scene and perhaps as the most famous graffiti artists in the world, Banksy is nothing more than a name. His identity to this day remains a secret, and it is perhaps one of the reasons that his works are so popular.
Banksy has created works of street art that involve political and satirical themes. Early Banksy art in Bristol, England, was freehand graffiti, but as he developed his works, the use of stencils became an essential part of the designs – not least because it enabled him to create his works quickly and efficiently (especially as graffiti remains illegal in the UK).
Although he has directed at least a film, been interviewed on several occasions on TV, radio and for newspapers and magazines, Banksy remains an enigma – with claims of his identity ranging from famous children’s TV artist and presenter Neil Buchanon to Jamie Hewlett, creator of cartoon band the Gorillaz.
Banksy for sale is often anti-establishment, featuring police, rats, soldiers, and children. He demonstrates an anti-war and anti-capitalist angle with slogans and striking, often darkly humorous, images. While the art is usually on buildings, some of the art has been specifically created in a way that makes them able to be sold. In most cases, photographs of Banksy art have been commissioned as prints and these are the ones that we have available for sale.
Banksy art for sale is found regularly throughout London, even as recently as 2021. He remains a well-known artist in his own right, and his works speak to millions who are unhappy about the way in which the world is being run.
