Have a Banksy print you wish to sell? We are currently looking for Banksy artworks for our network of art buyers.

You will need to provide, images of the artwork detail and full image, date of original purchase, original invoice if you have it.
- Email us a picture of the print, signature and edition number, certification and original invoice to email@example.com and we can value the artwork before you have applied or whilst you are in the process of getting the certificate.
- One of our dedicated art advisors will then call you to discuss valuation rates and commission charges for your artwork.
- Once you agree to give us exclusivity on the sale of the artwork, your personal art advisor will update you on the progress of your consignment.
Banksy prints are part of our history…
Enter Gallery’s founder, Lawrence Alkin helped Banksy go POP! He has been a key figure in the development of the urban art movement that we know today and has built the gallery to be one of the country’s top urban art spaces. He has helped launch the career of many an artist, including the illusive Banksy…
As part of Brighton Fringe 2004, Lawrence collaborated with Pictures on Walls to take over the 5000 sq ft space of the Argus Lofts in Brighton to put on the POP! show.
POP! was one of the first occasions Banksy's work had been exhibited, with limited editions selling for around £100. The poster reveals the profile that Banksy had at the time.
Lawrence eventually went on to sell over 8000 Banksy prints over a three year period;
“We sort of recognised that this was a bit of a phenomenon, something special”.
Banksy in Brighton – The Kissing Coppers at the Prince Albert pub
The Prince Albert Pub on Trafalgar Street is just a few minutes walk away from our Bond Street gallery. Adorned with a giant tribute to musicians of days gone by, (created by the host of our street art tour, REQ) it is also the original location of the iconic Brighton Banksy, ‘Kissing Coppers ‘
Frequently regarded as one of Banksy’s most notable works, Banksy chose Brighton as the location for this stencil due to the city’s rich history with the LGBTQ community and its status as the UK’s gay capital. Kissing Coppers quickly became a cultural staple of the city and its unique population.
Despite the free-thinking nature of Brighton, the evocative piece still received considerable damage to repeated vandalism in line with an increase in homophobic hate crimes in the area.
Due to the consistent damage to the original Kissing Coppers, the Prince Albert Pub decided to have the piece removed and transferred to canvas, replacing it with a replica in 2008. Such is the allure of Banksy’s work, even the replica is covered in Perspex to deter street art thieves.
“I get lockdown, but I get up again”
Banksy strikes again and this time he’s gone underground! His latest installation inside a tube carriage is another example of Banksy’s ability to condense complex political situations into deceptively simple imagery that captures the feelings of a nation. Read more.
Read about what we got up to on lockdown and how we got up again with the extra precautions we are taking to ensure everyone’s safety at the gallery. See our Covid-19 update.
