Banksy Climbing Rats Signed Original Street Art For Sale
Hi there and a warm welcome to my listing.
Going to sale is this high interest Banksy original street artwork and is without a doubt the most valuable, desirable and unique artwork that I have ever owned by this artist. It’s a vibrant, attractive and highly aesthetically pleasing, brilliantly executed piece of original modern art.
I’ve considered selling in the past and was offered £3750 by a keen collector just a couple of years ago but declined the offer in the hope that I could eventually fetch more, perhaps at sale. However, unfortunately, I am not currently realistically in the situation to be able to hold onto it. I’m therefore ideally looking to achieve a final sale of £3000+ and would possibly be open to ‘buy it now’ offers in this region. The artwork is also advertised for sale outside of and does already have interest. The listing here however will be in sale format for ten days and naturally go to the highest buyer (unless it sells offline first in which case it will be withdrawn from sale). I secured this piece in the autumn of 2009 from an art collector, exchanging a signed Banksy print in return.
This artwork which was created using the medium of spraypaint by the artist Banksy, is on a circular 30mph speed sign (45cm in diameter) and was originally attached to a lamp-post before being removed. It was taken down and removed by a council worker who kept it in storage before later putting it up for sale. The location of its original placement was in the West Hampstead area of North London within the Camden council. (If anyone has a recollection of it in-situ then I would love to hear from you)
If art is bought to be displayed and put on show, as I rightly believe it should, then this very cool and unique artwork does not disappoint. It has an authentic, striking and edgy feel which does add a ‘chic’ contemporary feel to the room or space that it is hung/displayed/exhibited in. It can be displayed in a number of ways, for instance being hung against a plain white wall, leaning in a freestanding fashion as a sort of sculpture, or really any way the owner sees fit to incorporate it into their Environment.
The meaning of the artwork is really one of ironic humour and is
simply a fantastic example of the artist’s many rats that inhabit the city in
addition to their living counterparts.
Thank you, good luck and if you have any questions then please don’t hesitate to ask.
