Banksy's Monkey figurine produced in a flambé finish by Kevin Francis Ceramics of Stoke-on-Trent, England, in a 2014 artist's limited edition of 25. Banksy monkeys have become an instantly recognizable motif in the graffiti writer's oeuvre. He cleverly uses monkeys to make political points from all angles. "Art Should Comfort the Disturbed and Disturb the Comfortable" is a quote from Cesar A. Cruz, a Harvard professor who has dedicated his life to fighting for justice. This statement drives home the ability for art to meet us where we are. "Will work for idiots" expresses Banksy's unapologetic criticism of today's political, military and financial establishments.
