SMITH & SINGER ONLINE
BANKSY: Love Is In The Air (2003)

Bidding is now open on the inaugural, stand-alone SMITH & SINGER ONLINE auction of a signed and inscribed screenprint of Banksy’s iconic, Love Is In The Air (2003).  The auction will be open to bidding for 10 days, concluding at 10 pm on Thursday 13 May. 

The right to protest is considered one of the hallmarks of democracy.  From the American War of Independence to the Berlin Wall, protest represents discourse, dissent, change.  Embodying this, Banksy’s paintings, prints and political gestures are subtly on point, with a hammer blow to authority and middle finger to art-world pretension.  The artist's irresistible ascent is a matter of hit and run.  Choosing walls and locations whose meaning he will invert is part of his iconoclasm.  His strike into these spaces is about change and movement.  

Offered over 17 years since the original image was created, Love Is In The Air is now imbued with the struggles and protests of our society since that time – from Black Lives Matter to Women’s Justice, Environmental and Climate Crisis to Brexit – and will continue to be one of the artist’s most enduring images.
