The 'Laugh Now' was initially commissioned for the Ocean Rooms nightclub in Brighton. In 2008, the Brighton nightclub sold the painting which realised a record auction price at the time. The Laugh Now is part of Banksy's earlier works, and is still one of his most popular images to date.

This image was first displayed at the 2003 exhibition Turf war, but Banksy has created a handful of unique versions of the work, depicting Madonna-like women feeding their babies with poison as targets appear above their heads, fighter jets race below or bullets scatter across the page. The prints dispense with the military imagery to create a pared down work that references Renaissance religious imagery, with the bottle adding a contemporary touch. Editions with blue and hot pink backgrounds are rare, while the red background is extremely hard to find – only four artists' proofs were made.

Multiples of this image were originally sprayed onto cardboard and suspended from the ceiling as part of Banksy’s first official exhibition, 2003’s Turf War, on Kingsland Road in London. The image went on to become one of the artist’s most instantly recognisable works after multiple Flying Coppers were pasted into a prominent position in London’s Shoreditch as a street piece. The police force has been a recurring motif for Banksy since he first started working as an artist: back in 1999, Banksy created his largest Bristol street work The Mild Mild West, which depicts a teddy throwing a petrol bomb at three police officers holding riot shields.

The image first appeared at Banksy's seminal exhibition, Turf Wars, staged in a warehouse in East London in 2003. The artwork, titled after the show, features former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill sporting a mohawk. Banksy puts his own spin on an image familiar to many, mockingly bringing the former prime minister to the Punk era.

The imagery for this piece is taken from a 1981 video recording of the attempted assassination of US President Ronald Regan, in which three secret service agents were injured. In Banksy's piece, the perpetrator John Hinkley has been caught painting a wall rather than shooting a gun, and the man on the right of the piece carries a police radio rather than a machine gun. The title of the piece was taken from a song by The Clash, and the image can be read as a comment on the disproportionate severity of punishments doled out to street artists.

Otherwise known as Bomb Love, a version of this image appeared on a cardboard placard created by Banksy for London’s 2003 Anti War Demonstration, which was attended by an estimated 1.5 million people. Other renderings have appeared on walls in London and Brighton. In October 2020, an unsigned edition of the image reached more than six times it high estimate when it was was sold for £48,506 at an online auction held by Phillips.

You might recognise the slogans on these grannies’ pieces of knitting – Punk’s Not Dead is a 1981 album by The Exploited, while Thug For Life is the name of a Tupac song which features Notorious BIG. Depending on your interpretation, that means either that these are open-minded OAPs with laudably diverse interests or that Banksy is commenting on the appropriation of counter culture by the mainstream. Grannies was first produced for Banksy’s 2006 LA show Barely Legal.

In 2007, TFL painted over Banksy’s Pulp Fiction mural near Old Street station citing ‘a general atmosphere… of social decay which in turn encourages crime’ as the reason behind the decision. The action only prompted more crime – Banksy came back and re-stencilled a new version of the piece, this time with John Travolta and Samuel L Jackson wearing banana costumes and carrying real guns.
