Dancing Butler On Toxic Beach Crude Oil Canvas Print by Banksy
New, gallery-wrapped (stretched canvas, stapled on a wood frame) and
ready to be displayed right out of the box.
In a knowing nod to his own sudden poster-print popularity, Banksy hijacks a familiar image from another user-friendly commercial artist: Jack Vettriano. Sneered at by anyone in the know, Vettriano’s twee and pleasant prints are bland and vapid wall adornments that struggle to free themselves from their own uninspired malaise. In "Dancing Butler On A Toxic Beach With Crude Oil"the artist stages an intervention on the popular Vettriano print Singing Butler by expertly diverting the situation to one on a beach stricken with spilled oil. Behind the nonchalant couple rescue crews struggle to contain the fallout of the environmental catastrophe while the insipid scene carries on regardless. By working with the very ‘found objects’ of commercial, unit-shifting fine art, Banksy is able to critique the inertia and absentmindedness that goes hand-in hand with the blasé following of fashion. Having first appeared in Banksy’s 2005 Westbourne Park show, "Dancing Butler On A Toxic Beach With Crude Oil"coincided with a new direction for the artist; in which he discarded the spray can in favor of new forms, objects, and interventions. In this notorious exhibition the artist unleashed 140 live rats into the gallery space, scrawled Dada-esque adaptions over the classics of Western art, all the while painting a morbid picture of cultural decay and cultural vandalism wherein the graffiti artist is cast as the savior rather than the perpetrator. "Dancing Butler On A Toxic Beach With Crude Oil"takes the elements of the artist’s street comment-pieces and adapts them to deconstruct the iconographies of the mainstream.
Giclee art printing process is a sophisticated method of art production using bright, vivid, archival inks. The art is manufactured on museum-quality heavy-weight cotton canvas using state of the art equipment - the latest technology available - with top of the line inks.
Our art pieces are produced on thick 100% cotton acid-free canvas - NOT PAPER.ï¿½ The canvas has a textured look & feel of fine art.
Our ink has been light-tested to last over 100 years. The canvas prints will not fade or turn yellow and are remarkably bright in color and unrivaled in detail.ï¿½ We only purchase Epson ink directly from the manufacturer and never use refilled cartridges.
We use the best shrink-resistant wooden-bar frame which allows for tightening of the canvas from the reverse side.
Custom packaging that keeps your canvas safe during shipment with "fragile" packing tape.
Custom flush-mount wall hanging setup designed to let the canvas hang right against the wall instead of the top hanging away from the wall on a single latch.
Professional frame wrapping: the canvas is carefully hand-stretched and stapled on the reverse side with no staples visible once the piece is hung.
