Banksy's Truck - 1.2 - 2.0 milly

First, I'll admit, I thought this artist's name was Bansky forever, and even thought there was a purposeful misspelling in his painted name on this truck, guess I was wrong and it's actually Banksy, which sounds much stranger than Bansky.

Graffiti is dope on this truck, crazy imagination on this guy. But dang that's a lot of cake for this truck and where the F would you put it? At least it shouldn't shred once purchased like his last work...

Supposedly being sold from 1-2 milly soon at Bonham's.

Turn it in to a mobile/tiny home in the back? Roll around and have impromptu street parties? Use it for The Purge when it finally kicks off?

I dig his work and love the different style of medium.

So I guess this begs the question... since this guy is like a rogue ex-vandal/graffiti artist, painting his artwork through the city on various items not belonging to him......

Did some random dude who owned this old Volvo wake up one morning to find his Volvo was Banksy-ized??!??! Then gets to take ALL of that cake to the bank simply by bringing his own truck to an auction?

Imagine that? Instant millionaire. I wonder....

Back in 2000 when commissioned by Mojo, the co-founder of Turbozone International Circus, to decorate the troupe's transport vehicle Banksy was a largely unknown graffiti artist, and he immediately went to work to cover the Volvo FL6 box truck with his signature style.

The dominant image on the truck's panels is the silhouette of a male figure swinging a hammer at metal gears, depicting the desire to throw a wrench in the industrial era's establishment. In the background flying monkeys and red stars run riotous. "Circus" is lettered across the rear of the truck, apropos since the truck was intended to support a circus. More menacing is another image featuring soldiers running away from a cannon.

The images were created by an obscure artist working in a branch of art that often gets little respect. Interestingly, over the course of the ensuing 20 years Banksy rose from that position into a place of honor among contemporary artists. After a well-received London show in 2005, Banksy's career really began to gain momentum with the "Barely Legal" exposition in Los Angeles in 2006. Attended by movie stars Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Dennis Hopper and Cameron Diaz, the avant garde exhibition included an Indian elephant painted red and gold in a corner of the gallery, which the guests were asked "not to talk about." One has to appreciate the cheekiness of asking a star-studded attendee list not to talk about the elephant in the room.

The "Crude Oils" exhibition in London the previous year also featured animals, in its case 164 black rats that were released in the gallery. Black rats have since become a Banksy signature, and his studio is called Pest Control.

Wow check this out..

Either he has some real talent, or is making copies of originals and modifying them on his computer. They look legit.
