Free Banksy Print-Out Jubilee Poster

I’ve mentioned my admiration and interest in the work of Banksy on the Punnery before, having seen it firsthand when he hit Toronto two years ago, so it should come as no surprise that I’m tickled that he’s created a free printable poster commemorating the Queen’s Jubilee anniversary.

Available at Pictures on Walls. Found via Quipsologies.

From the looks of it, Banksy’s been busy marking London with his own commemorations to the throne’s legacy. This isn’t the first time he’s created a piece dedicated to the monarchy either. I’m a huge fan of his work. It’s whimsical, oftentimes tragic, iconic. I’ve seen Exit Through the Gift Shop and been bewildered by the entire thing. And, as mentioned, I’ve even unwittingly witnessed his work here in Toronto!

Monarchist satire is also an old familiar friend to me. Some of my earliest memories of Queen Elizabeth happen to involve Scott Thompson from Kids in the Hall. I leave this rather disjointed but well-meaning blog post with an old Kids in the Hall skit. Happy Diamond Jubilee, Queen E.

      No, I’ve only seen Exit Through the Gift Shop, which was a Banksy-approved doc. Not sure what was fact and fiction, but it was an interesting film. He came to Toronto during the lead-up for the film’s release so I’m assuming he got some funding to travel to different cities and do his thing.

        Not sure if that was the documentary I seen.

        Nevertheless,it was still pretty decent(although I’m not an art fan).

        Not an art fan! But that’s like saying you don’t like music. You can’t name one graphic/fine artist (alive or dead) that you like?
