Whether plastering cities with his trademark parachuting rat, painting imaginary openings in the West Bank in Israel, or stencilling ‘We’re bored of fish’ at London Zoo’s penguin enclosure, Banksy creates street art with an irreverent wit and an international reputation that precedes his anonymous identity.
Banksy has gained his notoriety through a range of urban interventions, from modifying street signs and printing his own currency to illegally hanging his own works in institutions such as the Louvre and the Museum of Modern Art.
The ‘Peckham Rock’ replica, depicts a primitive man pushing a supermarket trolley. The original was placed by the anonymous ‘art terrorist’ in one of the British Museum’s galleries in 2005, it took three days before its staff were alerted to the piece stuck to the wall in a room of artefacts from Roman Britain.
