LONDON.- From Lichtenstein to Banksy, Louis Vuitton to Supreme, Peter Blake to Damien Hirst, Bonhams Pop x Culture sale returns to New Bond Street, London on Thursday 11 November, exploring the intersections of art and popular culture. The cross-departmental sale will feature an array of contemporary art, prints, entertainment memorabilia and fashion pieces, all relating to the theme of 'pop'. Leading the sale will be the print Girl with Balloon, 2004 by Banksy, which has an estimate of £100,000 - 150,000.

Laetitia Guillotin, Co-Head of Sale, commented: “Pop x Culture is such a fun and exciting sale, exploring the crossover of high art and street culture, both before and far beyond the pop art movement which exploded across the world in the 1960s. Central to the pop philosophy is that art should be accessible for everyone, and so it is wonderful to be able to offer such a variety of pieces in the sale, with something for all collectors – from Punk fans, via Warhol enthusiasts to Supreme fanatics.”

Bonhams is also collaborating with the artist Camille Walala, who will be painting a specially commissioned mural in Bonhams reception at New Bond Street. This will be on view during the sale preview and beyond. Walala has also curated a section of the sale, which will feature three exclusive works by the artist: Putting Things in Perspective - Polo, 2021. (estimate: £4,000 - 6,000), Putting Things in Perspective - Balance, 2021 (estimate: £4,000 - 6,000), and Putting Things in Perspective - Window, 2021 (estimate: £4,000 - 6,000).

Janet Hardie, Co-Head of sale, added: “Bonhams is thrilled to be collaborating with Walala – an artist who embodies the boldness and sense of fun of all things ‘pop’. Walala is known for her large-scale projects, such as the Dream Come True Building in Shoreditch, so these fantastic works reveal an exciting new direction in her practice. This is the first time her work has been offered at auction, making it an amazing opportunity to snap up one of her signature creations.”

Highlights of the sale include:

• Banksy (Born 1974), Girl with Balloon, 2004. Estimate: £100,000 - 150,000.

• Louis Vuitton X Supreme Limited Edition Red and White Monogram Malle Courrier 90 Trunk, 2019. Estimate: £60,000 - 80,000.

• After Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988), Flexible, 2016. Estimate: £50,000 - 70,000. Flexible was one of several Jean-Michel Basquiat paintings released as editioned screenprints in 2016, under the authority of the artist's sisters and administrators of the Basquiat Foundation.

• Allen Jones (Born 1937), A Parable of Our Time II, 1981. Estimate: £30,000 - 50,000.

• Herman Makkink (Dutch, 1937-2013), Rocking Machine, Gold Edition, 2021. Estimate: £15,000 - 20,000. In tribute to the 50th Anniversary since the release of Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange, the Estate of Herman Makkink has produced a small edition of 2 (with an Artist Proof) of his infamous Rocking Machine sculpture. A scale model made from Makkink's original mould, identical to the one used in the 1971 production. Instead of being finished in white, this version is covered in gold lacquer. As with the original, it contains the internal kinetic rocking mechanism. This edition has not been offered at auction before, and this sculpture has been produced specially for the 2021 Bonhams Pop x Culture sale.
