Banksy Nola (White Rain)


Auction Date: Wed 27th March

Westbury Hotel

37 Conduit Street

London

Estimate:

£60,000

In the Financial time's, Smart Arts magazine, February 16 2019, we see the arrival of the Nola auction. 

Ye will have/had to have rolled on/travelled  the corner of N.Rampart and Kerelec to catch a site of this original.

Rumour's are that it has been defaced/tagged over the years, defacement has occurred many times but after this tar which completely obscured it, some street artist took matters into their own hands and covered it in plexi glass.

So what does this stencil mean? 

My interpretation is that for me it depicts an emotional statement, "Don't ruin my day". 

I'm three months into this ~twelve month tour. 

I'm Interested to find out what this print sells for and whether there is any controversy during the auction. 

Last year during the sale of another piece, ironically called "girl with a balloon" in which her possession (balloon) appears to be captured in the very act of being lost, the print was shredded . 

I'm continuing to take a look at underground culture and dedicating 2019 notebooks to street art, otherwise known as a range called "Graffiti in the City" . 

Part I - Link

Part II  - Link Part III of this range continues with a brilliant image of "white rain" by the street artist Banksy.  March 2019 Image: 03 Country: America City: New orleans Location: N.
