Description

The graffiti artist Banksy is known for his irreverent humor and critically witty pieces. Here his punning, counterfeit ten-pound note replaces the queen’s portrait with the iconic princess whose death provoked a national and media sensation. Banksy’s counterfeit notes are considered rare and popular, which ironically, resulted in them becoming subject to counterfeiting themselves.

About After Banksy

Banksy (English, b. 1974) is a graffiti artist whose artwork has appeared throughout London and other locations around the world. Bansky's artwork is characterized by striking images, often combined with slogans. His work regularly engages political themes, satirically critiquing war, capitalism, hypocrisy and greed. Common subjects include rats, apes, policemen, members of the royal family, and children. In addition to his two-dimensional work, Banksy is known for his installation artwork. One of the most celebrated of these pieces, which featured a live elephant painted with a Victorian wallpaper pattern, sparked controversy among animal rights activists. He was the subject of a 2010 documentary, "Exit Through the Gift Shop," which examined the relationship between commercial and street art.
