Pseudonymously named England-based street artist Banksy is the subject of speculation and intrigue. His real name and identity remain unconfirmed, and his work often appears as graffiti. An active street artist since the 1990s, Banksy’s distinctive style is achieved at least in part with a stenciling technique. One of Banksy’s early motifs, known as the Flying Copper, shows a heavily armed police officer with a yellow smiley face and small angel-style wings. The Flying Copper motif first appeared at Turf War in East London in 2003, which was Banksy’s first major exhibition. Similar images have appeared often in Banksy’s work. A print of Banksy’s Flying Copper character is available in the Passion Sale of Modern and Contemporary Art, offered by Dane Fine Art.
The sale consists of over 1,000 lots, most of them modern and contemporary prints and multiples. Modern highlights include works by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, Marc Chagall, Joan Miró, and more. Contemporary works include three originals by Banksy, a Navaho mask painting by James Havard (along with five more works by Havard), several KAWS prints, works by Jeff Koons, and more.
