Description

Urban Pop art in your own home by cult artist Sly.

A Straight Banana:
Def: An edict or order from an official body that serves no purpose but to interfere in everybody's lives, adds unnecessarily to the burden of red tape and to further justify their unnecessary existence and/or to feed their self-importance.

Image is based on the Warhol banana on the album, The Velvet Underground & Nico, but straighter.


These are not prints as each is individually done and signed to order and consequently vary a little from the illustrated picture. These paintings are sprayed onto canvas. 20 mm thick and ready to hang.

It is likely that Juan Sly has become the biggest seller of original artworks in the UK. An artist exhibiting in mainly spray stencils and oils. He has exhibited at the Saatchi (a proper gallery with pillars and everything!) alongside the likes of Banksy, Terry O'Neil, Tracy Emin and Vic Reeves and now has a permanent collections in Germany, Detroit and Uk, alongside Damien Hirst and some other artists you might of heard of plus private collections around the globe. His works rock from humour to anti-war, sex to surreal. Particularly fond of the stencil medium as it allows him to quickly respond to events and ideas and gives the work that gritty illegal look. The stencils naturally allow the works to be resprayed and so become affordable and disposable. He likes the fact that people can buy art that they like and not to show off how much they can afford. You can find them in bedsits, legal offices in the Temple or stuck to a fence in Bristol.
