Banksy Chocolate Donut
Artist: Banksy (British, born 1974)

Title: Chocolate Donut

Year: 2009

Style: Urban/Street Art

Condition: Excellent

Picture Size: 22 1/16 inches high x 29 1/2 inches wide / 56cm high x 76cm wide

Edition: Original Limited Edition Print of 299, Signed by Banksy

Current Location: UK

Provenance: Published by Pictures on Walls, London, with their blindstamp. 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.

A mint condition, beautiful piece of art, Chocolate Donut satirises the powerful with the use of the term "donuts" as an insult. There has always been the association of donuts with the police force, and Banksy seems to suggest in this piece that we have donuts, protecting donuts. Somewhat more controversially, some say that the different "flavours" in this series, strawberry and chocolate, represent John McCain and Barak Obama in reference to the US presidential election of 2008.

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.

Price: £63,000. We would personally deliver it to you for free anywhere on the UK mainland, and you can see it in your home or office before payment. We show you the piece, and if for any reason you decided not to purchase, we simply take it away, i.e. you will not have to wrap or ship it back to us.
