I don't have one and I've considered making a move on one more times than I can count. But, I do believe that one day those London, NY, Bristol canvases will be looked back upon as highly desirable and important. I adore their raw nature with the crude legs, weaponary spelling, the fact that he replaced Paris with Bristol and the barcode too. It was obviously a joke at the time but in hindsight the artist may be surprised at how correct he was to highlight Bristol.
However today the contemporary auctions kick into full gear. If price were no matter and I could pick one lot from each of the evening sales, here would be my choices (dare to dream):
I went to this and was impressed by the selection, I picked up a catalogue and had a chat with the owner. He said the canvases were starting at £40k and most of them were owned by him! The Hopper Nighthawks pastiche was huge - about 10ft long, I asked how much - £1m !?!?!? Had not been sold yet (last day of show) and he said this one was being sold on behalf of a client.
Question for you experts - does banksy do one-off commissions? I thought not and my suspicion was that banksy was the "client" and he was trying to cash in and make a tidy sum a la Damien Hirst (and fair play to him of he is)
