Imagine a city where graffiti wasn’t illegal, a city where everybody could draw whatever they liked. Where every street was awash with a million colours and little phrases. Where standing at a bus stop was never boring. - Banksy
This work is in good condition. There are light creases throughout and minor paper surface loss to the upper left corner. There is evidence of vertical craquelure measures approx. 43cm in the right centre, with tiny paint losses to the associated area, consistent to the age of the medium. The left edge is deckled and cut slanted with occasional tears, original to the chosen method.
