Tesco Value Petrol Bomb
An offset lithograph produced by the artist in 2011.
The lithograph features an image created by Banksy subsequent to the riots that took place following the opening of a Tesco store on Stokes Croft (the epicentre of the Bristol street art scene and home to Banksy’s ‘Mild Mild West’ work which coincidentally also features a petrol bomb).
The piece measures 40 x 50 cm and was issued in a plate signed edition of 1000.
With Banksy prints now regularly fetching £10k - £20k this is an affordable way of owning an iconic Banksy image.
We have framed the work using museum grade materials and anti UV glass to preserve it in mint condition.
Have A Nice Day
Published in 2003 this was one of Banksy's earliest screen prints; in fact only the third produced by the artist. It re-worked the famous image from the Old Street Bridge in Shoreditch, London and includes some of his regular and iconic tropes the 'Smiley' and riot police.
It was issued in a hand-numbered limited edition of 500 of which 50 were signed. This copy is hand numbered 124/500 and is accompanied by the full Pest Control certificate.
It is in stunning condition and measures approximately 35 x 99 cm before framing.
Mounted and framed to museum standards.
