Police Riot Van
Dismaland Gift Print
Banksy realized gift prints that were given to people who contributed to the success of some of the exhibitions he created and hosted. Those prints were produced in small editions, unnumbered, all signed and uniquely dedicated.
Those prints were not meant to be sold, and are not authenticated by Pest Control Office.
This rare Banksy print depicts a group of school age children playing on a dilapidated, abandoned police van as if it were a playground. The colorful rainbow above the depressing van is an unusual juxtaposition that is typical of Banksy works. The police vehicle portrayed in the print was on display at Dismaland.
These prints were gifted to team members who worked with Banksy at Dismaland which was held in Weston Super Mare in 2015. 52 prints were created, each was signed in the bottom right corner and personally dedicated to the individual in the lower left corner.
