25 Street Art Gift Ideas
This is an original pen and ink sketch by Banksy. This is the preparatory sketch for the work CAMP
(lipstick Jews) featured in his book wall and piece.
The previous owner acquired the drawing from Banksy himself in 2002 when he did a guerrilla art
show in her club 93 Feet East in Brick Lane London.
There is plenty of provenance to prove that this is genuine and how she came to meet Banksy including
the original postcard flyer featuring an ice-cream cone with a stick of dynamite in it as the flake. Also
included is the posters of the event and photographs taken around the club of his artwork that he stencilled
on the walls including a man in a bowler hat with a tea cup in his hand. He also sprayed up a police car in
the courtyard with his clockwork policeman on the side and the words 'lying to the police is never wrong'.
The teacup men were only ever seen at this event.
The work has been sent through pest control. They confirm it´s Banksy and as a standard the do not issue
formal coa because the work was never intended for sale...but for sale now :-)
This seller has never before seen a Banksy drawing up for sale. Very few exist. The auction includes the
mentioned material as seen on the photos as well as name on the original owner and the email from PCO.
Also an article with the first and original owner in Harpers & queen. See photo. Natalie Tate befriended
Banksy in his early days. The Pest Control Authentication Request has no 9400.
Whether plastering cities with his trademark parachuting rat, painting imagined openings in the West Bank barrier in Israel, or stenciling “We’re bored of fish” above a penguins’ zoo enclosure, Banksy creates street art with an irreverent wit and an international reputation that precedes his anonymous identity. “TV has made going to the theatre seem pointless, photography has pretty much killed painting,” he says, “but graffiti has remained gloriously unspoilt by progress.” Banksy has gained his notoriety through a range of urban interventions, from modifying street signs and printing his own currency to illegally hanging his own works in institutions such as the Louvre and the Museum of Modern Art. Most often using spray paint and stencils, Banksy has crafted a signature, immediately identifiable graphic style—and a recurring cast of cops, soldiers, children, and celebrities—through which he critically examines contemporary issues of consumerism, political authority, terrorism, and the status of art and its display.
