Lot Details

"I Fought the Law" is a beautiful hand-pulled silkscreen by Banksy. The work obviously references the song, while incorporating Banksy well known anti-establishment rhetoric. Here, a man is in the middle of doing some graffiti, proclaiming his victory over the authorities, yet is caught immediately, effectively negating the statement he was making. A funny, whimsical piece from the signed edition of only 150. This piece is in mint condition, and is registered on the TAG Banksy Registry.
