Banksy screenprint never released publicly. Auction at Dreweatts & Bloomsbury in London on 11th December. A unique opportunity! Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you.
An extremely rare Banksy screenprint never released publicly and not seen on the market before will be offered as part of a Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions sale of Modern and Contemporary Prints. The sale is on Wednesday 11th December. Created in 2012, ‘Love Hurts’ is signed by the artist and is one of only 16 copies of the screenprint, making it one of the rarest of Banksy’s works.
The image will be immediately familiar to those who followed Banksy’s October residency in New York, where a heart similar to the one in the present lot was painted on a wall in Brooklyn on 7th October. This work by the elusive British street artist is estimated to sell for £50,000 – 70,000. [Lot 129].
The sale is on view at Bloomsbury House, Maddox Street, from Saturday to Wednesday, 7 – 10 December. The catalogue will be available online in the week commencing 18th November and online bidding with no additional premium will be available via www.bloomsburyauctions.com.
**Banksy is a pseudonymous of an anonymous Bristish street artist. Also, political activist, film director and painter. His subversive street art and epigrams are painted in a distinctive technique.
