Banksy,"Kids with Guns".
BEVERLY HILLS, CA.- Julien's Auctions has announced the addition of more rare pieces of Banksy art to its Street Art Auction to take place on Thursday, June 26th, 2014 at the Julien’s Auctions Beverly Hills gallery located at 9665 Wilshire Boulevard beginning at 7:00 p.m. Pacific time. The elusive British artist continues to remain remarkably anonymous while causing controversy or mayhem as he creates his unique artworks around the world. In addition to the rare sale of an original mural titled “Mariachi Player,” created in Mexico in 2001, Julien’s Auctions has acquired seven more Banksy originals.

The additional Banksy original pieces of art to be offered include “Kids With Guns” (Est. $80,000-$120,000), which features a pair of young children running, one with a gun and one with a briefcase full of cash. This black aerosol on composite stone wall is considered to be one of Banksy’s earliest known stencils from his hometown of Bristol, and is pictured on page one of the Steve Wright monograph “Banksy’s Bristol: Home Sweet Home” (Tangent Books, 2009).

Also available at the auction will be “Mortar Rats” (Est. $40,000-$60,000), a black aerosol stencil by Banksy featuring two rats preparing to fire a mortar, executed on the door of an electrical distribution box salvaged from a construction site near Münzstrasse, Berlin. This is one of Banksy’s most iconic images from his “rat series” and Banksy has executed this stencil at several locations around the world.

The additional Banksy art pieces to be offered joins an already impressive of Banksy art including the rare “Mariachi Player” (Est: $100,000-$150,000), “Anarchy Rat” (Est: $50,000-$70,000), “Rapper Rat” ($30,000-$50,000), “Gangsta Rat” (Est: $20,000-$30,000) and “Bomb Hugger” (Est: $2,000-$3,000).

The Julien’s Auctions Street Art Auction will also feature a number of other street artists including “Scarlet Heart” (Est: $20,000-$25,000), a mixed media work by renowned street artist Retna. Other highlights of the auction event will include “10 Ways To Make Him Notice You” (Est. $8,000-$12,000), created in Berlin by the Faile collective, and “Graffiti is the Voice of The Dissatisfied Soul” (Est. $3,000-$5,000), an aerosol work painted live by Mear One during the “Style Wars” event at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Other pivotal members of the urban art movement to be auctioned are Shepard Fairey, Risk, D*Face, Bambi, Alec Monopoly, Duce, Dcypher as well as pieces from the Con Art collection.

Julien’s Auctions will host a preview leading up to the live auction at the Beverly Hills gallery on June 26th, 2014.
