Banksy (British, 1975)
Churchill

2003
Hand applied mixed media on canvas, oil paint (not stencilled or sprayed)
9 x 9 feet

Shown in Banksy’s seminal 2003 Turf Wars, the work was suspended high overhead and flanked by numerous Flying Coppers, spray painted cardboard cut-outs. Banksy’s massive Winston Churchill painting with green Mohawk is a reference to the May-day anarchist riots of 2000.
