Banksy's Tesco Soup Can Screen Print - Unframed
This is a high quality silk screen print of the Banksy 'Tesco Soup Can' print, produced by the West Country Prince.
Tesco Soup Can was produced in many different colour variants, however this is the original version and it looks stunning with its silver can lid.
Banksy produced Soup Can in 2005 using the colours and design of the Tesco Value product range. More than a nod to Andy Warhol's Campbell's Soup can painting and prints; Banksy's Soup Can is thought to be a scathing attack on big supermarkets and their drive to eradicate traditional grocers from the high street.
With Banksy prints now ranging from tens of thousands of pounds to well over a hundred thousand pounds; for many this is the only way to enjoy your favourite Banksy piece at a fraction of the price.
This screen print is produced by the elusive West Country Prince using the exact methods as Banksy’s early works; silk screen printed by hand onto the correct original paper, to the correct specification. This is not a cheap digital re-print. It is the correct dimensions and colours as the Banksy Soup Can screen print – the print size is 500 x 350 MM. It is numbered and stamped on the reverse with the WEST COUNTRY PRINCE logo to prevent fraud.

Please note that this product is not endorsed by Banksy or Banksy's Pest Control organisation which clamps down quickly on any copyright abuse of Banksy imagery. The fact that the West Country Prince has been allowed to sell these pieces over many years has prompted speculation that he or she is an old friend of the street artist, or even the artist himself.
This print will be wrapped in acid free tissue paper and shipped inside a sturdy postal tube. Please be extremely careful when removing the print from the tube as the black ink scuffs very easily.
We take great care in rolling and putting the prints into the tube so please be careful removing them. Make sure there are no burrs on the opening of the tube as they might catch the print.
To remove - gently tap one end until the tissue paper appears then gently pull the tissue paper - Not the print. Please do not pull the print/prints by the corners.
Once out of the tube, allow the print to rest – forcing it flat may cause a crease.
