'Banksy: I can’t believe you morons actually buy this sh*t’ features thirty editions by the anonymous and notorious street-artist Banksy. The sale is cheekily titled in homage to the artist’s Morons screenprint (lot 211). The source image of this work is a photograph of the record-breaking sale of Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers at Christie’s in 1987, with van Gogh’s canvas replaced by Banksy’s text.

The sale is led by an extremely rare artist’s proof of Girl with Balloon – Colour AP (Gold) (lot 205), the first time that a colour variant of the artist’s seminal artwork has been offered at auction. The work is complemented by an impression from the standard edition of 600 with the red balloon (lot 202) which was acquired directly from Pictures on Walls by the present owner.

Further highlights include Choose Your Weapon (Lemon Yellow) (lot 207) and Choose Your Weapon (Magenta) (lot 209), from the small signed editions of 25. With a large selection of both signed and unsigned prints, this sale offers a diverse range of subjects and price points for works by Britain’s favourite artist.

Each lot is sold with the Certificate of Authenticity from Pest Control.
