Kate Moss


In a move which separates this from many of Banksy’s other works, the first and most obvious thing to note is the use of colour – which is very Andy Warhol-esque in its presentation and which instantly likens this piece to the alternative artist’s famous Marilyn Monroe collection of coloured prints.

So, why Kate Moss? And what is this image designed to represent? In Andy Warhol’s creative world, his Marilyn Monroe portrait – etched onto grey and then stained with vibrant colours – is both a celebration and an internal look at fame as somewhat of a spectacle. And by choosing a more modern face of fame and fortune, Banksy does the same with Kate Moss – using this image to highlight and also question everything that ignites her fame and makes her one of the most prominent people in the modern world.

The Story Behind Banksy’s Kate Moss

Warhol created an iconic visual representation of an icon in her own right, with the Marilyn Monroe prints being reproduced over and over in a multitude of different formats and mediums. In replicating the same style, Banksy does the same thing for Kate Moss – but when linked with Banksy’s own distaste for fame, fortune, and status, the piece takes on a slightly different meaning as well.

The fact is, Kate Moss is a part of modern celebrity culture and has appeared on over 300 magazine covers with endless shoots, interviews, and clips of her online. Banksy, by creating this piece of art based only on her face, takes something so recognisable and gives it new meaning – superimposing colours and shading onto a face that the world knows in an instant.

In terms of the colours, it is known that Warhol created and used different colours to express and celebrate the different personalities and sides of Marilyn Monroe – and Banksy does the same thing but in a greater contradiction of shades and tones.

The History of this Piece

The history of Banksy’s Kate Moss unsigned print is wrapped up in the original concept by Andy Warhol, who directly inspired this piece created by Banksy. For Banksy buyers and those looking to sell their Banksy Kate Moss piece, an interesting additional fact is that the artist actually created a special piece from the Kate Moss collection for the model herself and hung it in the bathroom of her honeymoon suite when she married in 2011.

This unsigned original print was first produced and released in 2005 and was initially part of a small collection of just 50 prints in a single colour palette. Not long after, a second release with a number of colourways and greater quantities was released to satisfy buyer demand.
