2017. Digital print with a piece of wall. Unknown edition size. Housed in a cheap Ikea frame as intended by artist.

This artwork can only be purchased at the Walled Off Hotel gift shop in Palestine. Each piece is slightly unique with reference to the markings on the concrete. The gift shop is currently closed due to Covid-19, with existing stock to be sold and never replenished, making this piece ‘limited edition’. None of the WOH Box Sets were signed or numbered by the artist.

Whether plastering cities with his trademark parachuting rat, painting imagined openings in the West Bank barrier in Israel, or stenciling “We’re bored of fish” above a penguins’ zoo enclosure, Banksy creates street art with an irreverent wit and an international reputation that precedes his anonymous identity. Banksy has gained his notoriety through a range of urban interventions, from modifying street signs and printing his own currency to illegally hanging his own works in institutions such as the Louvre and the Museum of Modern Art. Most often using spray paint and stencils, Banksy has crafted a signature, immediately identifiable graphic style—and a recurring cast of cops, soldiers, children, and celebrities—through which he critically examines contemporary issues of consumerism, political authority, terrorism, and the status of art and its display.
