Lot description
This work has been authenticated by Pest Control, and the owner is awaiting shipment of the Certificate.
Banksy’s depiction of two children donning police vests while running through water exemplifies the blend of iconic imagery and irreverent humor that only Banksy could achieve. The perfect portrayal of childhood innocence in this idyllic image of frolicking, laughing children is tarnished by the bulletproof vests reading “Police” that Jack and Jill wear for protection. Here, Bansky’s disdain for the police is highlighted as he sheds light on contemporary society where innocence is all but lost.
The work is framed in a plexi-box.
