Banksy hits the headlines www.sothebys.com
Why? Do we need a why when talking about Banksy? Nah!
A Banksy painting depicting politicians in the House of Commons as chimpanzees is to appear at auction this month, where it is expected to fetch a record sum for the artist.
The painting, entitled Devolved Parliament, is on public display in London for the first time at Sotheby’s until the October 3, with an estimated hammer price of between £1.5-2 million.
Despite its seemingly timely nature, Devolved Parliament was painted in 2009, originally created for an exhibition in Bristol. It stands at 13 ft across, making it the anonymous artist’s largest known canvas.
Nick Smith “Print Release – Haring Dog red & blue” 2nd October 4pm. www.smithandstuff.com
Where? Rhodes Gallery
Why? Nick Smith is favourite with the team at Artwerks (have a peek) and if you can't promote your fave's then what is it all about?
This image is the first time Smith has reworked a Keith Haring piece, taking the Dog image from Haring’s 1990 Icons series, with this edition being based on his sold out original collage that featured in our Summer Exhibition earlier this year.
The piece is the mould of past classic Nick Smith artworks, with each chip featuring a word forming a quote from Keith Haring's 1989 interview with Rolling Stone Magazine.
