I have a feeling it could be a serious offer to flippers holding the bag.

I think an honest offer from most people on this print would be somewhere below $30... if it were somebody joking about what 99.5% of people think it's really worth, that's the range I would assume their offer would be in.


Good insight from a new account.

That's 2 out of his last 3 releases. Looks like we have a fan in the making.

I guess Banksy copying Warhol isn't that bad.

Banksy and Dolk have used the banana as a gun. Brainwash takes the Warhol banana and does with it what you can only really do with a banana. Eat it. It's like the opposite of Magritte. Ceci est une banane. A satire of the banana art history is what this is for those wondering. :ziggi:

At 100 or 200 this would have been anarguabkynfood buy. At 500, regardless. On the fewn100-150 flip profit's including shipping both ways, insurance, and time. It seems worth it someone, but also a gamble I'd pass on. But good for those folks.

I was lucky enough to grab one of these prints on the drop yesterday, **I am a newb here, and I get that I have no opinion but I really like this take on Warhol's original idea, I sarcastically see it as a metaphor for Mr Braimwash's career. How much do you all think framing is going to run for this? Did anyone out there frame NYC Taxi or 4 Ali prints I am again hoping for a litho included. The last print Queen Red tube had none

More than the print itself. To do it well probably double.

Someone posted their framed Going to New York not long ago - maybe over in the thread for it, can't remember, but that would be my guess where I saw it. It looked really good, even though I wasn't crazy about the print.

Warhol is bad.
Overrated. Perhaps the most overrated artist in history.
People who copy him only appear weak and desperate.
Banksy is a legit artist, he doesn't need to cash in on crap.

Depending on a lot of things (Frame choice, museum glass vs UV plexi, matting options, etc) I would guess that framing this will range anywhere from $400-$1,400

It could be framed for <$200 if you DIY.
Just priced it out on FrameDestination. Basic frame, no mat, acid free foam core, UV acrylic.
