Lot Essay

The title 'NOLA' is an abbreviation for New Orleans, Louisiana (LA), the city where Banksy's first version of this subject appeared as a stencilled graffiti work in 2008. The image of a girl being drenched by rain that is falling from inside of her umbrella is in reference to the devastating events of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, which had been amplified by failure of the flood defences that had been designed to protect the citizens from such a disaster.

The editions in White Rain and Grey Rain were made available for general release but the present example of Pink and Yellow Rain and other colour variations were produced as artist's proofs and were not not issued publicly.
