Artmarket.com: Banksy is the top living artist in Artprice’s turnover ranking for H1 2021. The Art Market recognizes Street Art as a major and globalized discipline

2021/09/29 Commentaires fermés

Will future generations consider Banksy the most important artist of the early 21st century? In any case, that’s what the $123 million hammered in the first half of 2021 suggests, giving Banksy 5th position in Artprice’s general ranking (all periods combined) just behind the giants Picasso, Basquiat, Warhol and Monet.
Whether we like it or not, a page in Art History is being written and it can no longer be seen as ‘just a fad’. After 25 years tackling universal issues (that are far from being resolved) by taking them into the streets and inviting them into our daily lives, Banksy’s highly topical works are today driving the growth of his market more than ever before.

thierry Ehrmann, CEO and Founder of Artmarket.com and its Artprice department : D emand for Banksy’s works has been growing exponentially for five years . I t is already too late for museums to hope to acquire original works at reasonable prices. But who could predict that this anonymous street artist, turning his back on the system, would become the most successful living artist on the Art Market? A few years ago, the Tate Modern apparently refused a donation from the artist … Since then, Banksy has become a genuine symbol, made stronger by each crisis (financial, health, etc.) that our world encounters . ”

Game Changer

Banksy’s work has pursued a tradition that began with Ernest Pignon-Ernest and Blek le Rat, but he brought the art of stenciling into the 21st century. Each new work discovered in the streets of Bristol or the ruins of Gaza or on the back door of the Bataclan in Paris or in the New York subway has been photographed, publicized, liked, shared, even appropriated … before being removed, as is still too often the case, by the city’s cleaning service, or, in some cases stolen.
A brilliant drawer and very clever with his locational choices and the diffusion of his works, Banksy has brought to life an oeuvre that is spectacular and rhizomatous in nature. Each new piece carries a message for everyone, regardless of our age, language or knowledge of art history.

Taken together, Banksy’s works have, for a quarter of a century, formed a gigantic fresco that depicts the sorrows and challenges of our society, both present and future: climate change, war, inequality, terrorism, etc. His work increasingly stands out as a political weapon via projects with an audacity unprecedented in art history: his ‘bemusement’ park Dismaland (2015), the Walled Off Hotel in Bethlehem (2017) and his migrant boat Rescue (2020), to name but a few.

While Banksy remains first and foremost a committed street artist who seeks a sort of perfect equilibrium in both space and time, his work has subsequently been made available practically ad infinitum. By reusing his stencils for several years on canvas or cardboard, by printing limited editions, by uploading photos to his Instagram account and by having his works reproduced on cups, magnets and key rings, Banksy has made his work omnipresent in our daily lives.

John Russo, Group CEO of Maddox Gallery: When you consider the widespread and global acclaim that Banksy has achieved as an anonymous living artist, whose practice is an art form that for centuries has been considered vandalism, he’s single-handedly changed the face of contemporary art as we know it. This, combined with his engagement with current affairs and witty immortalization of public opinion has not only allowed him to capture the zeitgeist of our time, but also to open the gates of the contemporary art world to a new era of creatives.”

Compared with Beeple, whose digital works are followed daily by 2.2 million followers on Instagram and whose NFT Everdays fetched $69.3 million in March 2021, Banksy’s work actually responds to an extremely pressing demand for art that looks straight into the eyes of our present and sounds alarm bells for the future. Paradoxically, his work criticizes the very society that acclaims him. Highly cynical (Laugh now), his work nevertheless gives a preponderant place to tenderness (Flower thrower), humour (Che Guevara on Skates), hope (Girl with balloon) and it always seeks to surprise.

Happy Shopper

Banksy’s pieces are rarely sold on the primary market, except as a happening (in New York, Venice or on shop.grossdomesticproduct.com), but they circulate abundantly on the secondary market, whether in galleries, on the internet or in public auctions. More than 1,200 of his works were offered in auctions during the first semester of 2021, three-quarters of which found buyers (only 23% unsold).

Entire sessions are devoted to him at Sotheby’s, Christie’s, or Forum Auctions, covering all price ranges from original works at several million dollars and highly sought-after artist’s proofs to prints and sculptures in more or less limited editions, signed or unsigned. This intense transaction level is overseen by an authentication system set up by the artist himself, the ‘Pest Control Office’.

John Russo, Group CEO of Maddox Gallery:“The magic behind the story of Banksy is that he has achieved what every artist wants to achieve: success on the secondary market. With Banksy last releasing an edition in 2010, purchasing a Banksy on the primary market has been impossible for most collectors.

With Pest Control at hand, however, to authenticate works in circulation on the secondary marketplace, Banksy has engaged his followers in a simple game of economics. By drastically limiting the supply of his work, he’s driven up the value of the pieces in circulation, allowing his early followers the opportunity to realize an incredible return on their purchase.

For those that have purchased from a reputable gallery with a close working relationship with Pest Control, as we are proud to say that we have at Maddox, Banksy investors will have achieved a considerable profit in the past decade, with our own clients realizing an average profit of 42.6% in 2020 alone.”

I Can’t Believe You Morons Actually Buy This Shit

When Banksy has tried to undermine the very market that has elevated him to stardom (albeit anonymous), it has had the opposite effect: when his Girl with balloon (2006) partially self-destructed just after being hammered down for $1.4 million in 2018, its value is said to have risen substantially. This spectacular turn of events was so well orchestrated that some suspected collaboration between the artist and Sotheby’s: how could the shredder have escaped the prestigious auction house’s attention? Clearly Banksy doesn’t suffer too much from bad luck.

And yet… he is also capable of playing the market’s game when it is for ‘a good cause’. Earlier this year, he sold his canvas Game Changer (2020) in order to refinance Southampton hospital in the midst of the health crisis. The work fetched a record $21.9 million, i.e. 17% of his total auction turnover in the first semester of 2021.

In H1 2021, Banksy’s market was mainly split between the United Kingdom (64% of his auction turnover), the United States (15%) and Hong Kong (13%). This triangular market, more and more evenly distributed between the three major capitals of the global art market, fully contributes to the rise in the value of his works. This is perfectly illustrated by the three auctions of his small canvas Laugh Now But One Day We’ll Be in Charge (2000):

– on 15 October 2007 at Sotheby’s London for $342,000

– on 29 June 2017 at Bonhams London for $380,000

– on 18 June 2021 at Sotheby’s Hong Kong for $2,283,000

At 47 (his assumed age) Banksy is an international superstar, adored by the street art community and art market professionals alike, with 11 million followers on Instagram. But unlike many influencers, Banksy cares less about his personal image than about his art, which questions the future of our planet and Humanity as we know it.

Artmarket.com : Banksy est le 1er artiste vivant dans le classement Artprice au S1 2021. Le Marché de l’Art reconnaît le Street Art comme discipline majeure et mondialisée

2021/09/29 Commentaires fermés

Les générations à venir considéreront-elles Banksy comme l’artiste-clé du début du 21ème siècle ? C’est ce que présagent les 123 millions $ engrangés aux enchères au premier semestre 2021, qui placent Banksy en 5ème position dans le classement général Artprice, juste derrière les géants Picasso, Basquiat, Warhol et Monet. Qu’on le veuille ou non, une page de l’Histoire de l’Art est en train de s’écrire… car il ne peut plus s’agir d’un simple effet de mode. Ses œuvres liées à l’actualité enflamment toujours un peu plus le Marché, mais son travail aborde depuis 25 ans des problématiques universelles, bien loin d’être résolues, en les sortant dans la rue et en les invitant dans notre quotidien.

thierry Ehrmann, Président et Fondateur d’Artmarket.com et de son département Artprice :« La demande pour les oeuvres de Banksy est en croissance exponentielle depuis cinq ans, à tel point qu’il est déjà trop tard pour les musées d’espérer acquérir des œuvres originales à prix raisonnables. Mais qui pouvait prévoir que ce street artiste anonyme, tournant le dos au système, deviendrait l’artiste vivant le plus performant du Marché de l’Art ? Il y a quelques années encore, la Tate Modern aurait paraît-il refusé une donation de l’artiste… Depuis lors, Banksy est devenu un véritable symbole, rendu plus fort par chaque crise (financière, sanitaire, etc.) que traverse notre monde ».

Game Changer

Banksy s’inscrit dans la tradition d’Ernest Pignon Ernest et de Blek le Rat, mais fait entrer l’art du pochoir dans le 21ème siècle. Chaque nouvelle œuvre, découverte dans les rues de Bristol ou les ruines de Gaza, sur une porte-arrière du Bataclan ou dans le métro new-yorkais, est photographiée, médiatisée, likée, partagée, détournée… avant d’être trop souvent encore nettoyée par le service propreté de la ville. Génie du dessin, de sa mise en situation et de sa diffusion, Banksy a donné vie à une œuvre aussi spectaculaire que tentaculaire. Chaque pièce porte un message qui s’adresse à tous, peu importe notre âge, notre langue ou nos connaissances en histoire de l’art.

La somme de ses performances forme depuis un quart de siècle une gigantesque fresque qui dépeint les chagrins et les défis de notre société, présents et à venir : climatiques, sécuritaires, inégalitaires, terroristes, etc. Son oeuvre s’érige de plus en plus comme une arme politique, à travers des projets d’une audace jamais atteinte dans l’Histoire de l’Art : son parc d’attraction Dismaland (2015), le Walled Off Hotel de Bethléem (2017), ou le bateau pour migrant Rescue (2020).

S’il reste d’abord un street artiste engagé, qui recherche la justesse dans l’espace et dans le temps, son travail se décline ensuite pratiquement à l’infini. En réutilisant ses pochoirs pendant plusieurs années sur toile ou sur carton, en tirant des éditions limitées, en abreuvant son compte Instagram et en déclinant ses travaux sous forme de tasses, de magnets ou de porte-clefs, Banksy a rendu son œuvre omniprésente dans notre quotidien.

John Russo, Group CEO of Maddox Gallery: « Au regard de la renommée internationale que Banksy a acquise en tant qu’artiste vivant et anonyme, pratiquant un art considéré pendant des siècles comme du vandalisme, il faut reconnaître qu’il a changé le visage de l’art contemporain tel que nous le connaissions. Son engagement politique et sa manière à la fois drôle et intelligente d’immortaliser l’opinion publique lui ont permis de capturer le zeitgeist de notre temps, mais également d’ouvrir le monde de l’art contemporain à une nouvelle ère de création. »

When you consider the widespread and global acclaim that Banksy has achieved as an anonymous living artist, whose practice is an art form that for centuries has been considered vandalism, he’s single-handedly changed the face of contemporary art as we know it. This, combined with his engagement with current affairs and witty immortalisation of public opinion has not only allowed him to capture the zeitgeist of our time, but also to open the gates of the contemporary art world to a new era of creatives”.

Mieux encore que Beeple, dont les œuvres digitales sont suivies jour après jour par 2,2 millions de followers sur Instagram et dont le NFT a été vendu pour 69m$ en mars 2021, Banksy répond à une demande extrêmement puissante pour un art qui regarde droit dans les yeux notre présent et tire la sonnette d’alarme pour l’avenir. Paradoxalement, son oeuvre critique cette société-même qui l’acclame. Plein de cynisme (Laugh now), son travail accorde cependant une place prépondérante à la tendresse (Flower thrower), à l’humour (Che Guevara on Skates), à l’espoir (Girl with balloon), et recherche toujours la surprise.

Happy Shopper

Les pièces de Banksy se vendent rarement sur le premier marché, sinon sous forme d’ happening (à New York, Venise ou sur shop.grossdomesticproduct.com) mais elles circulent abondamment sur le second marché, à la fois en galerie, sur internet et aux enchères publiques. Plus de 1200 de ses œuvres ont été proposées en salles de vente sur les six premiers mois de l’année 2021, dont les trois-quart ont trouvé acquéreur (seulement 23 % d’invendus).

Des sessions entières lui sont consacrées chez Sotheby’s, Christie’s ou chez Forum Auctions, couvrant toutes les gammes de prix, depuis les œuvres originales à plusieurs millions de dollars, en passant par des épreuves d’artistes très recherchées, jusqu’aux estampes et aux sculptures en éditions plus ou moins importantes, signées ou non. Cette circulation d’une extrême intensité est chapeautée par un système d’authentification mis en place par l’artiste lui-même, le Pest Control Office.

John Russo, Group CEO of Maddox Gallery: «  La magie de Banksy est d’avoir réalisé ce que tout artiste souhaite : le succès sur le second marché. Avec sa dernière édition sortie en 2010, l’achat d’une estampe de Banksy a d’ailleurs été impossible sur le premier marché pour la plupart des collectionneurs.

Mais grâce au Pest Control, authentifiant les œuvres en circulation, Banksy a engagé les collectionneurs dans un simple jeu économique. En limitant drastiquement l’offre, il augmente la valeur des pièces en circulation, permettant à ses premiers adeptes de réaliser des retours sur investissements époustouflants.

Pour ceux qui ont acheté auprès d’une galerie réputée, travaillant en relation étroite avec le Pest Control Office, comme nous en sommes très fiers à la Maddox Gallery, les investisseurs de Banksy ont réalisé des bénéfices considérables au cours de la dernière décennie. Nos propres clients ont en moyenne enregistré un bénéfice de +42,6% sur le seul exercice 2020  »

The magic behind the story of Banksy is that he has achieved what every artist wants to achieve: success on the secondary market. With Banksy last releasing an edition in 2010, purchasing a Banksy on the primary market has been impossible for most collectors.

With Pest Control at hand, however, to authenticate works in circulation on the secondary marketplace, Banksy has engaged his followers in a simple game of economics. By drastically limiting the supply of his work, he’s driven up the value of the pieces in circulation, allowing his early followers the opportunity to realise an incredible return on their purchase.

For those that have purchased from a reputable gallery with a close working relationship with Pest Control, as we are proud to say that we have at Maddox, Banksy investors will have achieved a considerable profit in the past decade, with our own clients realising an average profit of 42.6% in 2020 alone ».

I Can’t Believe You Morons Actually Buy This Shit

Lorsqu’il veut se soustraire au Marché, Banksy n’en devient que plus attractif encore. En témoigne la vente de Girl with balloon (2006), dont la valeur aurait bondi après sa destruction partielle à l’automne 2018, en pleine session de vente. Ce coup de théâtre a été si bien orchestré que certains ont suspecté une connivence entre l’artiste et Sotheby’s : comment le mécanisme d’auto-destruction a-t-il pu en effet passer à travers les mailles de la prestigieuse maison de ventes ? Mais décidément la malchance ne sourit pas à Banksy.

Seulement lui aussi est capable de jouer le jeu du Marché quand c’est pour ‘la bonne cause’. En 2021, il a décroché sa toile Game Changer (2020), offerte à l’hôpital de Southampton, afin de refinancer l’institution en pleine crise sanitaire. L’oeuvre a récolté un record de 21,9m$, soit 17 % de son produit de ventes aux enchères en ce début année.

Au S1 2021, le marché Banksy se répartit essentiellement entre Royaume-Uni (64%), les Etats-Unis (15%) et Hong Kong (13 % de son produit de ventes aux enchères). Ce marché triangulaire, de mieux en mieux distribué entre les trois grandes capitales du Marché de l’Art, contribue pleinement à l’augmentation du prix de ses œuvres, comme le révèle les trois passages de la petite toile Laugh Now But One Day We’ll Be in Charge (2000) en salles de ventes :

– le 15/10/2007 chez Sotheby’s Londres pour 342 000$

– le 29/06/2017 chez Bonhams Londres pour 380 000$

– le 18/06/2021 chez Sotheby’s Hong Kong pour 2 283 000$

A 47 ans (âge présumé), Banksy est une superstar internationale, adulée par la communauté street art autant que par les professionnels du Marché de l’Art, ainsi que par de 11 millions de followers sur Instagram. Mais contrairement à nombre d’influenceurs, Banksy se soucie moins de son image personnelle que de son art, qui questionne le futur de notre planète et de l’Humanité telle que nous la connaissons.

Artprice by ArtMarket présente le Top 25 des street artists : le succès de Banksy n’est pas une anomalie du Marché

2019/10/28 Commentaires fermés

Avec un nouveau record à 12,2 m$ au début du mois d’octobre, le street artist Banksy fait figure d’exception sur le Marché de l’Art. Il ne faut pourtant pas oublier qu’en avril 2019, Kaws – un autre artiste issu de la scène graffiti – a enregistré un record à 14,8 m$ à Hong Kong. Et que dire de Jean-Michel Basquiat ou de Keith Haring ?

Le street art n’est plus un art anonyme : qui n’a jamais entendu parler de Sherpard Fairey (Obey) ou d’Invaders ? Qui ne connais pas le petit bonhomme de Stik ? Du Mur de Berlin à Wynwood Miami, le street art n’est plus seulement toléré par les autorités locales, il est devenu une vitrine et même un ‘must-see’ touristique. Pour le Marché de l’Art, il est une pépinière extraordinaire.

thierry Ehrmann, président et fondateur d’ArtMarket.com et de son département Artprice : « Longtemps considéré comme une pratique illégale, le street art est devenu le comble du luxe, que collectionnent même les stars : Brad Pitt, Pharrell Williams, Leonardo DiCaprio. Basquiat parait-il repeignait parfois les murs des appartements de ses amis. Qui s’en plaindrait aujourd’hui ? Il est dans la nature de l’homme – et surtout des autorités politiques – de s’insurger d’abord, et puis seulement de regarder et d’écouter les amateurs ainsi que les professionnels. Le Marché de l’Art a ainsi toujours une longue avance sur la reconnaissance publique. Une situation que vit La Demeure du Chaos, musée d’art contemporain gratuit et siège social d’ArtMarket.com, que dépeint Julien Bouisset dans son dernier article paru dans L’OBS : La Demeure du Chaos, prototype du musée de demain ».

Dans « Le street art au carrefour des droits », numéro 75 du Journal spécial des Sociétés, Françoise Labarthe explique : « Aujourd’hui, le street art ou art urbain n’est plus uniquement lié à son emplacement physique. Il est devenu une catégorie, une façon de s’exprimer. Tant et si bien qu’un artiste peut être qualifié de street artist sans avoir jamais peint dans la rue. Il s’adapte, à tel point qu’il s’expose désormais dans des galeries, qu’il fait l’objet d’‘urban art fair’, passant de l’illégalité à la légalité, de l’opprobre à la reconnaissance, de l’éphémère au pérenne ».

A la question « Pensez-vous que l’art urbain participe d’une transgression, d’un interdit ? », l’artiste Miss Tic répond « Comme tous les mouvements, au début, ils sont transgressifs, puis ils deviennent officiels. J’ai fait partie du transgressif, mais aujourd’hui, le street art a perdu cet aspect. Bien entendu, le contenu peut être subversif. Ma pensée peut l’être, mais peindre dans la rue ne l’est que si c’est fait de manière sauvage et sans autorisation préalable ».

Et Miss Tic d’ajouter : « La rue permet un coup de projecteur, mais aujourd’hui, c’est aussi devenu un marché et une économie. »
