Banksy - Golf Sale - Signed Screenprint - 2003 - Limited Edition of 750 (150 signed)

Banksy - Golf Sale - Signed Screenprint

The work by the graffiti artist Banksy Golf Sale is a screenprint on paper signed in original. It is part of a limited edition of 750 pieces of which only 150 are signed. The work is provided with the Pest Control certificate of authenticity.

Among the artist's well-known subjects, the work is inspired by the infamous photograph of the Chinese demonstrator in Tiananmen Square in Beijing. In the original, the student faced alone the advance of four army tanks of the Chinese government. Banksy, artist among the most sought-after in the street art scene, transforms this icon of political struggle into a sharp and ironic satire: the man holds a sign with "golf sale" written on it and an arrow pointing to the right, as if to underline the futility of violence and war.

Golf Sale measures 49.2 x 34.5 cm and has the number of the edition and the artist's signature at the bottom. The work is dated 2003.

Golf Sale: Banksy and the Protest Against War

The protest against war is one of the most important features of the art of Banksy. Works such as Golf Sale and Bomb Hugger are a perfect example of this and they show how the artist carefully used irony and sarcasm to highlight the nonsense of war and violence.

Through Banksy art and social protest merge perfectly in his simple but effective style that has allowed him to convey strong and politically uncomfortable messages to his audience.

Golf Sale mentions the photograph of the 1989 protests in Tiananmen Square, immediately bringing to the viewer's mind a shot that has now become an icon of the struggle for civil rights. The episode reminds a violence that had turned into a real massacre, when the tanks opened fire on the protestors in the square. With Golf Sale Banksy ironically suggests how physical violence towards an ideal is both vain and useless, like shooting golf balls on enemy territory.

The History of the Work: from Murales to Screenprint

As it often happens with Banksy, graffiti artist, but also studio artist, the subject of this work made its first appearance on the streets of Bristol as graffiti. Only after, he created the limited edition screenprint on paper.

With Banksy street art and studio works reach their balance: from the urban intervention, on the walls of the city, the artist then realizes with the iconic stencil the silkscreen prints. His works can thus circulate among the public and reach the viewer who would otherwise be unable to admire the original.

The limited edition silkscreen printing we proposed was made in 2003 and is part of a limited edition of 750 pieces in the world of which only 150 are signed.
