Banksy
Grannies (Unique), 2006

2006

About

The ‘Grannies’ is a Unique silkscreen print created in 2006 by Banksy. The millennial pink hue contrasts sweetly with the stencil-esque black and white grannies as they knit sweaters with slogans “Punks Not Dead” and “Thug For Life” - a humorous juxtaposition of scene and message, his signature motif cleverly disguised, as usual. The harmless grannies appear content to be partaking in such a humble act of rebellion, perhaps this is to remind the viewer not to underestimate the relatively innocuous appearance of the older generation, which acts as a guise for their rebellious pasts or put simply, to not judge a book by it's cover. The work is signed by the artist in pencil on the lower right corner. 'Grannies' arrives ready to install, outfitted with a custom-made frame, a white underlay matte, UV protective non-glare glass and wire on reverse. The 'Grannies’ comes with the Arton seal of approval for authenticity, quality, and exquisite condition. Questions on this piece? Send us a note or call us directly, we'd love to talk with you! Banksy (British, born c. 1974/1975) is one of the most well-known, if anonymous, street artists working today. Banksy, the pseudonym adopted by the artist, guards his privacy and the details of his life remain largely unknown to the public. He initially garnered fame for his grafitti, which combines spray paint and stenciling techniques with commercial, political, and contemporary imagery, infused with ironic social commentary and humor. His work first began appearing on walls in and around Bristol and London’s Shoreditch district during the mid-1990s, and he has since gone on to place images on the sides of corporate buildings, billboards, and the Israeli West Bank wall. The unveiling of a new Banksy works often incorporates pranks or performance. For example, he secretly added his own pieces in museums like the Tate Modern in London or the Paris Louvre, smuggling them in under a coat and discreetly affixing them to a wall. He has also opened gallery shows to the public with specially-bred rats running around the space, and once inserted an inflatable doll dressed as a Guantanamo Bay prisoner into the Disneyland theme park in California. In 2015, Banksy created a large-scale installation titled Dismaland Bemusement Park, and immersive and fully functional amusement park that featured political commentary on the distribution of wealth, sexism, and the UK government. The park operated from August to September of 2015, was funded by Banksy himself. In addition to his regular graffiti practice, Banksy creates works for several charities, and consistently opens exhibitions to wide audiences and critical acclaim. He lives and works in England.
