Regular price $650.00

Banksy (British, b. 1974) (After): Save or Delete. Offset lithograph printed in colours on recycled paper, unknown edition, unframed. This poster was issued with a full sheet of eight stickers. The art work for this poster was commissioned by Greenpeace to highlight the problems of global deforestation as part of their Save or Delete campaign. The image, which features some of the main characters from Disney's The Jungle Book transposed onto a picture of a devastated forest, was intended for use on posters, billboards and postcards. These were withdrawn because of the protectionist policies at Disney. A version of the photographic poster is illustrated in 'Banksy Wall and Piece page 161.
Banksy’s ‘Peckham Rock' was a piece of concrete showing a supposed prehistoric figure pushing a shopping trolley. This was placed in The British Museum in 2005, accompanied by an authentic looking information label and was there for three days before anyone realized something was amiss.

Banksy is an anonymous England-based graffiti artist, political activist and film director. His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humour with graffiti executed in a distinctive stenciling technique.
