The artwork “Morons” depicts a classic auction room in which there are a multitude of buyers who compete for a work described by the auctioneer at the same time. The latter keeps track of the offers in the room, so that in the center there is a display showing the price currently reached by the best offer.

The work at auction is not identifiable, for the artist it is probably not an important fact, but the only painting whose details we can appreciate is the one on the right, with the inscription on display: “I can’t believe you morons actually buy this shit”. A clear BANKSY critique of the art world, capitalism and the modern consumerist society.

This particular work by BANKSY is titled Morons Sepia by virtue of the coloring in which the image is entirely immersed and appeared for the first time on the street artist’s website following the auction sale of one of his works at a record price. It was then subsequently exhibited in an unsigned edition at the Barely Legal exhibition in 2006 (Morons – LA Edition) and, finally, signed and numbered in an edition of only 300 copies worldwide.
