Canvas Print Description

Banksy’s “I Fought the Law and I Won” was first released as a print in 2004 and sold in both a signed and unsigned format. Unsurprisingly the print commands hefty price tags these days and belies the counter-cultural iconicity that went into its creation. This particular print inserts itself into a long trajectory of anti-authority sentiment. The image itself is a stenciled re-enactment of a photo taken by presidential cameraman Mike Evens on March 30th, 1981 in Washington D.C. Evens captured the moment when the secret service and police agents rush to thwart an assassination attempt on the US president Ronald Reagan. The would-be assassin was one John Hinckley, Jr, who shot and wounded Reagan and three others. In Banksy’s appropriation of the image a dripping paintbrush replaces the gun in Hinkley’s hand, and beside the scene is the evidence of the figure’s attempted ‘assassination’. Daubed on the wall is the phrase ‘"I Fought the Law and I Won"’, an ironic statement considering the would-be street artist’s predicament. Not content with giving his fans a wry recreation of an attempted Presidential assassination and a talking point for viewers over ‘who really won’, the phrase used by the artist also tied into a long history of pop culture rebellion. Most famously covered by the Clash, the song ‘I Fought the Law (and the law won)’ has since become an anthem of tense dissatisfaction. But it was the San Francisco band the Dead Kennedy’s — clear forerunners of Banksy’s spirit — who appropriated the song and sang it from the point of view of a policeman. The newly adapted chorus thus went: ‘"I Fought the Law and I Won", because I am the law, so I won.’
