Banksy, KAWS, RETNA and other urban art stars shine at Heritage Auctions
KAWS (b. 1974), Isolation Tower, 2016. Screenprint in colors on Saunders Waterford paper, 60 x 43 inches (152.4 x 109.2 cm) (sheet) Ed. 41/50.

DALLAS, TX.- For its July 28 Urban Art Signature® Auction, Heritage Auctions has gathered a who's who of Urban Art superstars.

"This might be one of our best-curated auctions, with a great selection of artists such as RETNA, KAWS, Banksy, Crash, Futura and others," says Walter Ramirez, Urban Art Consignment Director at Heritage Auctions. "With a variety of editioned and original works, the diverse sale has something for everyone."

Among the highlights are nine Banksy prints, all with Pest Control certificates of authenticity. "These works include some of his more iconic images," Ramirez says, "such as Morons from 2006, Choose Your Weapon from 2010 and the ever-great image of Dorothy being searched by a cop in Stop and Search from 2007."

In addition to a great selection of works by KAWS, including an untitled diptych from 2013 and a color-splashed 2016 screenprint titled Isolation Tower, the auction offers several pieces by RETNA, including an early 21st century, graffiti-inspired painting titled 2 There Should Be. No 'More' No Less / 1 to Embody the Power. / 1 Crave.

The auction also features a selection of artists who have been at the forefront of the Urban Art world since the 1980s and continue producing high-quality work, including Futura, Crash and Lady Pink. "Lady Pink was in the vanguard of a male-dominated graffiti world back in the '80s, and she continues to be an influential figure in the Urban Art world," Ramirez says.

Rising artists on the Urban Art scene also make a fine showing in the auction. Highlights include Untitled, 2018 by UK artist Nigel Howlett and Metastasize, 2010 by South African artist Justin Bower.

And one auction highlight, a Def Jam bomber jacket, is not a work of art at all. Instead, as Ramirez notes, "it's a fun piece of hip-hop culture from the early '90s."
