Canvas Print Description

Banksy’s 2012 graffiti work "Sew England"has been the subject of global controversy and mass media coverage the likes of which rarely seen by a Banksy stencil. Having appeared on a north London wall in an area particularly damaged by the 2011 London riots, the piece of guerilla art immediately found a place in the hearts of the dissatisfied local residents. Yet just a few months later, in early 2013, the mural mysteriously vanished — along with a sizeable chunk of the wall. It was an act of clandestine vandalism worthy of the artist himself. Despite the owners of the wall refusing to clarify whether their permission was sought, the piece then turned up on the listings of a Fine Art auction in Miami for a reserve price of half a million dollars. The theft of the work and its transportation to America for sale mired the art world in controversy, eventually leading commentators to question the concept of the public domain and the ownership of street art. Unfortunately the controversy that surrounded the sale of the work has obscured the particularly local issues that were the intended subject. Having been stenciled on the side of a shop known as Poundland — the UK-version of the 99-cent store — Banksy’s piece sought to criticize the chain for making use of sweatshop labor. "Sew England"also coincided with the nationalist hysteria that surrounded the London Olympics and the Queen’s Jubilee, whereby Poundland became the main resource of Union Jack ‘bunting’ — the strips of flags used to decorate street parties. In Banksy’s version a young child hunches over the last in a line of bunting, producing the cheap, tacky, and temporary adornment that came to symbolize the brief intermission of national pride that was summer 2012 in the United Kingdom.
