Both in terms of the subject and the way it was done formally, Kate Moss is a clear homage to Andy Warhol’s famous Marilyn Monroe suite. Moss and Marilyn Monroe’s faces are combined by Banksy, who also adds Monroe’s hair to a grayscale image of Moss before colouring it in vivid hues. Like many of his previous works, Warhol’s photographs of Monroe served as both an exaltation of celebrity and a sarcastic critique of it as a spectacle. One of the most recognisable faces of her day, Kate Moss was included in Time magazine’s 2007 list of the 100 most influential persons in the world and has been on more than 300 magazine covers. For 25 years, she made contributions to the history of fashion, and her likeness entered into the fabric of world popular culture.

The Artist


Bristol-born graffitist Banksy is the most famous and infamous street artist in the world. Despite the fact that he doesn’t create any work for the public to buy, or any pieces that can be displayed in a gallery, he is loved throughout the world for his spray on pieces of social commentary and taboo-busting images. Banksy’s true identity remains a secret and he prefer to stay in the shadows rather than take the acclaim for his work. He started using his trademark stencils as a way to create a piece quicker and so reduce the chances of being caught by the police. His works are displayed on walls, streets and bridges across his home town of Bristol and at other selected locations across the world. Fans have been known to try and take down walls, so they can own an original Banksy. A product of the British underground street scene of the 1990s, Banksy’s work is often darkly humorous, satirical and mocks the establishment. Some commentators have compared him to Blek le Rat, a French graffiti artist. Banksy himself says Bristol-based graffiti artist 3D was his original inspiration. In 2010 he directed a documentary film called ‘Exit Through the Gift Shop’, about a man obsessed with street art.
