1. BANKSY TENNER - DI-FACED £10 NOTE
An original Banksy Di-Faced Tenner.
Let me first start by saying that this is NOT REAL CURRENCY OR A COUNTERFEIT BILL. This is a PIECE OF ART WORK from the UK’s famous artist ‘Banksy’.
These were made by 'Banksy' and distributed at various events. Originally attached to his ATM machine piece on Rosebery Avenue, London, the notes were also available from Santa’s Ghetto exhibition at the Soho Bookshop in December 2004.
The note has all the 'Banksy' subtleties as you would expect, like, Dianna's face replacing the Queens, 'Banksy of England', instead of 'Bank of England', the POW initials as well as DiFaced Currency information on the bottom right hand side, the Serial number CA70 364470, and the words 'trust no one' on the reverse side.
The note measures 76mm x 143mm and weighs 1.34g.
2. BANKSY DESIGNED GREENPEACE STICKER
Banksy designed this for the Greenpeace 'Save or Delete' campaign against deforestation in 2001. Posters, Stickers, and Postcards were printed and then withdrawn part way through distribution due to the threat of legal action from Disneys legal team serving Greenpeace with cease and desist notices.
They were due to be distributed in magazines and national newspapers - this sticker was unissued and is unused (never pealed off its backing) its in perfect condition as can be seen in the pictures.
3. BANKSY SIGNED ENVELOPE
This envelope came with the note when originally purchased in 2004 - it has great patina, a few scuffs, but is a great added extra with the 2 other amazing pieces.
PLEASE BID WITH CONFIDENCE - OVERSEAS DELIVERY AVAILABLE - PLEASE GET IN TOUCH. NO ACCEPTANCE OF NIL RATED BUYERS UNLESS APPROVAL HAS BEEN SOURCED.
HAPPY BIDDING AND ENJOY.............
(British, b. ca.1974/1975) is one of the most
well-known, if mysterious, Graffiti artists working in England today. Banksy,
the pseudonym adopted by the artist, heavily guards his privacy; the details of
his life largely unknown to the public. He has garnered great fame for his
graffiti works, which often combine spray paint and stenciling techniques with
commercial, political, and contemporary imagery, infused with ironic social
commentary and humor. Often critical of business and corporations, Banksy’s
work has been found on the sides of corporate buildings, on billboards, as well
as the Israeli West Bank wall.
