To promote the premiere of his film, ''Exit Through the Gift Shop,'' Banksy went on to collaborate with the publisher, Don't Panic, to produce this poster which was available in Don't Panic Packs from selected shops in each Don't Panic region and also outside specially selected gigs and club events during the weeks of the films release. With two horizontal folds as issued. The top fold with associated creases and some loss to printed surface. Overall in good condition, unknown edition size.

About Banksy

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. “TV has made going to the theatre seem pointless, photography has pretty much killed painting,” he says, “but graffiti has remained gloriously unspoilt by progress.” 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.
