Banksy's Original Art Work for Greenpeace Campaign Poster to Sell at Bonhams

LONDON.- An original art work by the legendary street artist, Banksy, for a Greenpeace Save or Delete campaign photographic poster, is to be sold at Bonhams, New Bond Street, as part of its Urban Art sale on 11 January 2011. Estimated at £60,000 - 80,000, the unique piece was given to the vendor by the artist himself.

The art work 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. While it was printed, it was never put into circulation because of the protectionist policies at Disney. A version of this poster is illustrated in Banksy’s Wall and Piece book.

Another sale highlight is a performance piece created by American graffiti artist, Futura 2000, for punk rock band The Clash’s Combat Rock tour. Best-known for painting subway trains during the 1970s, Futura 2000 was commissioned to paint the stage backdrop for The Clash whilst they performed. Estimated at £15,000 – 20,000, it is believed to be the only work to have survived from the gigs.

Another sale highlight is a giant steel suspending sculpture modelled as a Shark by British artist DNTT (Tony d’Amico), whose work has recently been exhibited at Glastonbury Festival (2010) and Mutate Britain Exhibition (2009). It has attracted a pre-sale estimate of £8,000 – 12,000.
