Banksy’s HMV, also known as His Master’s Voice or Rocket Dog, is a print which appropriates the iconic logo of the music and entertainment company of the same name that was created in the 1920s. The logo itself was actually inspired by Francis Barraud’s painting of a dog Nipper listening to a cylinder phonograph. Banksy’s work depicts a seated dog facing a late 19th century gramophone.

AUTHENTICATION
Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Pest Control


 


Banksy's two-color screenprint Bomb Love (commonly referred to as Bomb Hugger) is emblematic of his witty aesthetic which uses creative juxtapositions to make humorous commentaries on society at large. The stencil depicting a young girl in a black dress tenderly clutching a bomb as if it were a teddy bear was originally placed on an East London wall. A not so subtle nod to the irony and devastation of war, Banksy has repeatedly executed this stencil throughout London.
