Selim Verol's "punked" Winston Churchill sculpture

churchi-ill-bust

Winston Churchill, WWII hero and legend responsible for super-smart world-leader-y quotes like “I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly,” has made his way to the work of art collector Selim Verol.

Smurf War Church-ill was created as a deliberate political commentary and as a shout-out to Banksy’s “Turf War” stencil of a mohawked Churchill that arose after the riots defaced the ex-Prime Minister’s statue back in 2000. Though this first 77-piece limited edition run may be limited to depicting Churchy in “Smurf” blue with a white mohawk, rumor has it that even more limited-edition runs in other colors will be released in the futures. Maybe an Azrael yellow or Gargamel pink…? Get this papa smurf-ill shipped to your door for just under $300.
