As August comes to an end the art market starts to awaken with exhibitions, auctions and solo shows. The art market continues to perform well with Kaws’ works flying off the shelves and the rising prices of his prints showing a never ending pattern. The Banksy greatest hits show at Lazarides has definitely given his originals market a boost but prices of his prints are lagging with many signed prints now available for under £20k. Examples that I have personally seen are Jack and Jill, Every Little Helps and Chocolate Doughnuts, presenting a opportunity which is tempting to take a bite at. Please see below a list of those shows and exhibitions that have caught our eye and those that we will be watching closely.
