Banksy Art For Sale: Napalm

Banksy Napalm
Artist: Banksy (British, born 1974)

Title: Napalm

Year: 2004

Style: Urban/Street Art

Condition: Excellent

Medium: Screen print

Picture Size: 70cm wide x 50 cm high / 27 1/2 inches wide x 20 inches high

Edition: Original Limited Edition Print of 150, Signed by Banksy

Current Location: UK

Provenance: Signed and Stamped Certificate of Authenticity (COA) with Di-Faced Tenner authentication attached - the authentication process involves an image of Princess Dianna on a £10 "banknote" (a Banksy creation) which is hand numbered and then torn. Then one part of the note is stapled to the COA and the other retained by Banksy's representatives (Pest Control). This of course makes it extremely simple to authenticate a particular Banksy piece purchased from ArtFair by matching the two parts of the note together.

Banksy Collectors: Banksy collectors are reported to include Damien Hirst, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Jude Law, Macaulay Culkin, Paul Smith, Jake Gyllenhaal, Gwyneth Paltrow and Christina Aguilera.

Comment: Banksy has captured the world's attention and held it since the late 1990s, when his controversial stencilled artworks rose to fame and transformed him into Britain's most celebrated graffitti artist. His contempt for authority is no secret and he continues to display powerful artworks on walls, streets and bridges across the globe.

Banksy's symbolic screenprint Napalm is so highly thought of, that it is feaured in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum.

It carries with it a strong, updated anti-war message. It is based on an iconic photograph taken by Nick Ut in Vietnam in 1972, of a girl, 9 year old Kim Phuc, fleeing a napalm attack on her village. The photographer doused the girl in water and drove her to the hospital. Kim survived, but her back was severely burnt.

Mickey Mouse and Ronald McDonald, as corporate mascots, represent the popular culture of America, perhaps how many Americans would prefer the outside world to perceive them - as opposed to a country that once routinely dropped napalm bombs, disfiguring children.

Opinion: Banksy has produced a range of highly-collectable limited edition artworks which have become hugely popular. Whether you are a first time Banksy buyer, a regular collector or an investor looking to diversify your portfolio with tangible assets, Banksy's art, as it has shown in the past, may prove to be a lucrative investment.
