Street artist Bansky has been surprising the world since the 90’s. From then on Banksy’s silkscreen prints and stencil paintings were racking up record-breaking sales in storied art auctions such as Sotheby’s and Bonham’s of London. These successful sales marked Banksy’s entry into the commercial art world. For the second part of our series “Discovering Banksy”, we are sharing his “little-known” paintings and prints mostly dating in the 90’s and early 2000’s.
