Catalogue Note

In 1998, Banksy performed at the Glastonbury Festival along with artists Inkie and 3D, using a friend’s lorry as a canvas for their grafitti and a backdrop for demonstrations of their art. The present work, originally created on the front of the lorry was preserved with the full permission of the artist, making this one of the very few outdoor works to be approved for resale by the artist.
