Banksy (Dismaland)
Title: Snorting Copper on cardboard (2015)
Size: 29cm x 25 cm
The piece comes with gift receipts from dismaland + stamps and tags

Snorting Copper portrays a uniformed policeman on his hands and knees. But far from forensically fishing for clues at a crime scene, this particular officer of the law is engaging in an altogether different line of inquiry. The mural, stenciled on an East End toilet block under the cover of darkness in 2005 and showing a policeman apparently sniffing cocaine, garnered instant intrigue and notoriety.

Dismaland was a temporary art project organised by street artist Banksy in the seaside resort of Weston-super-Mare in Somerset, England.

About Banksy

Perhaps the most famous figure in street art working today, Banksy is known for urban interventions that demonstrate irreverent wit and a biting political edge. Enhancing his mystique by maintaining an anonymous identity, the artist has modified street signs, illegally printed his own currency, and illicitly hung his own work in the Louvre and the Museum of Modern Art. He often uses spray paint and stencils in his critiques of consumerism, political authority, terrorism, and the status of art and its display.
