      Stop and Search features two childhood favourites Dorothy and Toto from the beloved children's book and film The Wizard of Oz.  Banksy has rendered this street art in his recognisable stencil graffiti in black and grey with the only pop of colour found on the police officers disposable blue gloves.  Banksy's Stop and Search is a satirical take on the controversial stop and search legislation first introduced in the UK in the 1980's and showcases Dorothy having her wicker basket searched by a police officer, clad in riot gear, intent on finding contraband items on the naive and innocent Dorothy.  This Banksy reproduction makes for a superb addition to a contemporary inspired interior decor.

The Artist

BANKSY

Banksy is an anonymous Bristol, England based street artist, political activist and film director, active since the 1990s. 

His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine irreverent wit executed in his trademark graffiti stencilling technique.  Banksy's works of political and social commentary have been featured on streets, walls, bridges of cities and art displays throughout the world.  Gaining notoriety through a range of urban stages by modifying street signs to illegally hanging his own art in institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art and the Louvre.

Leaving his mark on cities with his signature parachuting rat and paying homage to Queen Elizabeth (during her jubilee celebrations) to graffitiing “We’re bored of fish” above a penguins’ zoo enclosure, Banksy creates street art with humour and satire with a international reputation that precedes his anonymous identity. Most often using spray paint and stencils, Banksy has created a famous signature, immediately identifiable graphic style with a recurring cast of celebrities, soldiers, cops and children through which he critically examines current issues of political authority, consumerism and the status of art.
