This framed 2018 print by BANKSY titled 'Peckham Rock' is a Birch Wood Postcard that was released by The British Museum with approval from Pest Control. 

The original concrete Peckham Rock depicting a prehistoric figure pushing a shopping trolley was placed by Banksy in The British Museum in 2005 alongside an official looking label. The artwork stayed in position for 3 days before being noticed and removed. The reverse of the replica you see here has the information that was displayed on the label next to the original piece. This wooden replica has been made with the permission of Pest Control and is therefore an official piece of Banksy work that was released by the British Museum in 2018 during the exhibition ‘I object: Ian Hislop’s search for dissent’

 

Peckham Rock Size: 120 x 180mm.

Framed Size: 270 x 330mm

Not hand signed or numbered. 

Original British Museum Price label attached verso. 


Whether plastering cities with his trademark parachuting rat, painting imagined openings in the West Bank barrier in Israel, or stenciling “We’re bored of fish” above a penguins’ zoo 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. Most often using spray paint and stencils, Banksy has crafted a signature, immediately identifiable graphic style—and a recurring cast of cops, soldiers, children, and celebrities—through which he critically examines contemporary issues of consumerism, political authority, terrorism, and the status of art and its display.
