Banksy Buyers Guide

Find the right edition. Make the right investment.

With in excess of 70 different limited edition Banksy prints now published this guide has been put together as a resource to help both the seasoned and aspiring Banksy collectors make the right choice in which print to buy and/or invest in. Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the information is correct, very little data exists on some of the earlier prints so if you spot an inaccuracy, please contact us.

"It put him on the radars of a lot of non-art people who don’t really know his name, and I think that helps a lot for his market."

Miety Heiden, Head of private sales at Phillips, Artsy, November 2018

"Over the past two years, prices have risen around 120% on average."

Gareth Williams, the former head of Contemporary Art at Bonhams

"“A lot of the more traditional collectors, people who buy Basquiat and Haring and even Giacometti or Bacon, are also now looking at Banksy as a really serious artist.""

Alex Branczik, Sotheby’s head of contemporary art for Europe, January 2021

Banksy Editions

Editions Guide

The Banksy Editions Guide is aimed as a resource to document the details of all the original limited edition Banksy prints officially that have been published with details on the edition size, signature and numbering information as well as variants such as artists proofs, printers proofs or VIP prints.

Edition Types

Banksy’s prints are sold either signed or unsigned. The total number in each edition varies, but is typically between 600-750. The signed prints are more collectable than unsigned prints and this is reflected in the market pricing. With each edition there are also Artists Proofs, and often Printers Proofs. These are in addition to the official edition and are normally a low number. As a result a premium tends to be attached as they are more covetable. There are also VIP prints, these are editions for which there has never been an official public release instead they are sold to a small group of 'Banksy VIP's. These are highly desirable for any and all Banksy collectors.

Hang-Up Rat Ratings

We have been major dealers in Banksy's work for well over a decade and in that time we are privileged to have seen nearly all the prints. We devised the Hang-Up Rat Rating as a straightforward classification system, between 1-5. The higher the number of rats the more desirable and sought after that limited edition Banksy print is. And as a general rule this is reflected in the market pricing with the most expensive prints having the highest 'rat ratings'.
