Banksy Grin Reaper 2005 Signed

$154,223.19

About

Grin Reaper Banksy 2005 This limited edition screen print by Banksy shows a grim reaper, with a comical twist. The reaper holds his traditional scythe, and his sitting, casually on the top of a clock. It is five minutes to midnight, presumably the reaper is awaiting for the clock to strike twelve, before enacting his grim duties! However, instead of the usual skeletal features associated with the reaper, his face has been replaced with a bright yellow ‘acid-house’ smiley face. The only color in what is otherwise a black and white Banksy piece. This piece plays with the boundaries between good and evil, by taking a typical symbol of something ‘bad’ (the reaper) and countering that with something considered to be good… a smiley face, or depending on the individual raves and acid-house. The bringer of Doom, is now perhaps, not so bad after all. Almost welcoming you to your fate. The signed Banksy print Grin Reaper was released in 2005. As a Banksy art, this piece is well-known and is regularly in demand; its relatively low edition size contributes to its desirability – there are just 300 Grin Reaper signed prints. Condition: Excellent Signed limited edition with official pest control certificate Measurements: Height 33” inches / 84cm Width 22” inches / 57cm Depth 1” inches / 2.5cm.
