Steve represented Banksy in his early years and brought his art into the public spotlight. The Di-faced Tenner was created for a public stunt Banksy had orchestrated that involved dropping a suitcase full of the fake currency in public, during rush hour at the Liverpool tube station in London and at the Notting Hill Carnival and Reading Festival. Later that year, an unknown amount of Tenners were also released at the exhibition preview of Santas Ghetto, held at Lazarides Gallery. In addition to its fascinating history as an unperformed public stunt, the Di-faced Tenner had the honor of being Banksys first piece of art to enter in the British Museum private collection earlier this year.
Includes signed letter of provenance from Steve Lazarides including matching tamper resistant hologram on the frame verso and letter. ARTWORK IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.
