Banksy Rat

Newer Older

Taken in Liverpool, England

There's a bit missing after someone stole the Banksy signature tag from the pen in the rat's hand (this is Liverpool !)

    Nice one

    Is a Banksy signature worth something
    I'm just amazed he can do something this big without being spotted.

    his work is worth 000s these days..

    this work is obv required a team effort. I can wpork out how he did the red line..maybe he did the red line when there was scaffolding up? Or with a really good paint with a really good roller...

    then did the rat body free hand later. the face and tail done with stencil. either way is is shockingly original!

    Thanks for the comments.
    Have to agree, it's the size of this peice that sets it apart.

    danny - cheers for that , I was trying to figure out how he could have managed a stencil that big, but your right, the body can be whacked up then the head , paw and tail stenciled in later.

    Lol, the amount of money he made on that recent painting auction, im sure he can afford a small army of helpers :-)

    Seen his current "i can't belive you morons buy this sh*t" homepage?

    His "Wall and Piece" coffee-table book is great if you've not checked it out btw.

    Sigh - this is the Banksy that Liverpool Council are looking to paint over in order to tidy up the place in readiness for being City of Culture 2008 - words fail me!

    Looks like it's going to stay (at least in some form) the coucil have (strangely) just painted round it. The rat's still there , but now on a super cleen white background. Not sure whats going on with the bottom half?
