// Soup Cans

Banksy’s Soup Cans prints are amongst his most iconic, and came in four different varieties.

First of all, originally released in 2005 was the original colourway single Soup Can.  A total edition of 300, 50 were signed and 250 were unsigned.

Next in 2005 came the coloured variations of the Soup Can.  Still depicting a single can, these came in a total of 28 different colours, with 10 of each (making 280 prints in total), all of which were signed.

Lastly, in 2006 came the Lazarides edition which featured four soup cans with gold tops.  These came in two different varieties, grey paper or cream paper.  There were 54 of the cream version, and 12 of the grey, and all of them were signed.
