Monkey Mask Session
Famous but not yet fully artistically recognised, we must look beyond the intelligent pictures on walls and the Iconography.
The real art is the activism, the disruptive and persuasive actions destabilising the art world. Between the social-political and iconoclash is Banksy’s domain.
My image Banksy, Monkey Mask Session, (Tag), London, 2003 is the most well-known image of Banksy.
Based on that image, my new screenprint edition Banksy, Icon, Monkey Mask Session, Yellow/Violet, 2022 is a natural evolution.
Thanks to Andy Warhol (Marilyn) and Banksy (Kate), screenprints as images are the medium of contemporary Icons, and my new Banksy screenprint, deliberately referencing Warhol, reflects that status.
