Banksy’s Donuts first appeared on a canvas in 2009 in the pink colourway – often called the ‘strawberry’ version, in reference to the pink icing covering the donut. Unlike most of Banksy’s works, Donuts was never painted in the street. Soon after the canvas original was released, 299 signed Strawberry Donuts screenprints and 299 of the Chocolate Donut version were released. The number of prints released – 299 for each flavour – is said to be a reference to Krispy Kreme Doughnuts’ financial troubles in 2007, when it closed down 299 stores. This edition is hand-signed in pink crayon.
