Stenciled on a bright pink canvas, Banksy’s monochrome grandmas appear to be aging arbiters of reliability and domesticity. The only hint to the contrary is a dripping pool of paint that hangs from the cozy lampshade. But look a little closer and these old dears are not knitting a bombastic Christmas sweater or a limp scarf. ‘Punk’s Not Dead’ and ‘Thug for Life’ are emblazoned on the woolly jumpers they so lovingly knit. These two phrases, both representative of the two English speaking peoples separated by an ocean, and their proud national subcultures, speak to an aging generation of urban radicals who have suddenly found themselves with children and grandchildren. The piece also speaks to the normalization of youth rebellion, with statement-shirts for sale in major high street chains; perhaps these pensioners are preparing a warm jumper for the little punks and thugs in their family. Witty, irreverent, and slightly poignant, Banksy’s grannies are icons of that tragic time when a musical tribe becomes a cultural norm. This premium quality giclee art print has been produced on luxurious 100% cotton rag textured art paper using archival quality inks resulting in a superior print suitable for museum or gallery display.

Banksy is an England-based graffiti artist of unverified identity. His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humour with graffiti executed in a distinctive stencilling technique. His works of political and social commentary have been featured on streets, walls, and bridges of cities throughout the world.


Skip the trip to the framer and save yourself time and money. We offer a bespoke custom framing service that is far more affordable than using your local high street framer and light-years ahead in quality than the ready-made frames you will find in homeware stores. Please note that our framing service is currently only available to customers based in New Zealand and Australia. We will deliver your beautiful custom framed artwork to your door within 7 working days if you reside in New Zealand or 15 working days if you reside in Australia. Grandmas Knitting works equally well with all three of our frame styles. Our black frame is the most popular option.
