As the desire for work by British street artist Banksy continues to surge, artnet Auctions has set record prices for some of his earliest and rarest prints. In our Contemporary Editions sale this February, the iconic screenprint Stop and Search (2007) doubled its estimate, and sold for $40,300, as did the color-variant screenprint Morons (White), which achieved $32,400.

As we continue to build on this market momentum, we welcome new consignors to take part in our exciting auctions. Contact Conner Williams, head of Prints & Multiples, at cwilliams@artnet.com today to learn more about selling with us.
