Banksy Original Rat Climbing Rats On Enamel Sign Reclaimed Circa 2005 Street Art For Sale

Banksy Original Rat Climbing Rats On Enamel Sign Reclaimed Circa 2005 Street Art

Banksy street artwork, circa 2005-2006

This Banksy art work was retrieved from its original location by a close friend and fellow enthusiast in around January / February 2006 and was a familiar sight to commuters and general members of the public for a short while.

The artwork came from close proximity to St John Street, walking distance to the City University for those of you that remember it in situ.

As you can see, Banksy used his genius and imagination to jokingly add to the street furniture’s artistic appeal by positioning several different climbing rats to look as though they are in fact, climbing around the famous roundel design depicted within the sign.

There are several extremely well known examples of this particular rat series on signs, walls, doors and even safes and old caravans and no doubt many more hiding away in art collectors trophy cabinets around the globe, such is the fascination with the artists early street work.

Banksy decided to display his work fairly recently on relevant street signs such as the latest example (that I am aware of) on a no stopping sign, that lasted only a few hours before being removed on Bell Lane, London.

It has been displayed in a glass box to allow for a stunning architectural centre piece in my home andtherefore, remains in the same ‘worn / loved’ condition as when I acquired the work. It is completely original apart from the removal of pigeon droppings that were present.

The bus stop signs are part and parcel of the street furniture in central London and were mostly replaced a couple of years ago for the newer style (graffiti resistant signs) such is the problem of tagging in the capital.

If you require any further close up photographs then please get in touch, well in advance of the end of the sale to allow me time to respond.

For the avoidance of any doubt, I am aware how special and rare this item is. As I hope you may appreciate, I can only say so much in an internet listing so feel free to ask any questions and I will do my best to answer them as soon as possible.

The sign is 18 inches by 15.5 inches by 3 inches (at widest point) and weighs approximately 5 Kilos.

Postage and packaging costs include the materials required to ensure this item reaches you in the same condition as described above and will be sent on a tracked express service both in the UK and other destinations worldwide should it attract international interest. International postage costs should work out cheaper than quoted. Payment to be made within 72 hours of the sale end.
