London, Sotheby's S|2 Gallery, Banksy - The Unauthorised Retrospective - Curated by Steve Lazarides, 11 June - 25 July 2014, lot 7
Typically crafting his images with spray paint and cardboard stencils, Banksy is able to achieve a meticulous level of detail. His aesthetic is clean and instantly readable—broad social cartooning rendered with the graphic bang of an indie concert poster.
