“The Haight Street Rat” is an original graffiti painting by renowned British street artist BANKSY … The controversial painting was recently featured in the hit documentary “Saving Banksy” and is one of the most sought after pieces of modern art in the world
In celebration of Canada’s 150th Birthday year, we have teamed up with some amazing partners within Windsor/Essex County who (appreciate and understand the importance of street art and) wish to bring this once in a lifetime experience to their community as a FREE public event…We have transformed over 2000sqft into a 360 degree immersive art experience that will also include artwork from over 20 local artists.
The “Haight Street Rat” is a controversial graffiti painting by renowned British street artist “Banksy”… The estimated value of the “Haight Street Rat” is now over $1.7 Million (USD) making it arguably one of the most sought after pieces of modern art in the world. The painting was removed from a wall in San-Francisco by private art collector (Brian Greif) who wanted to see the artwork preserved and put on display in a museum (free of charge to the public) before it was vandalized or destroyed like some of the other Banksy paintings which had mysteriously popped up across the city during the summer of 2010…
The infamous “Haight Street Rat” graffiti painting will be visiting Windsor-Essex County for 3 Days Only as part of “The Saving Banksy Canada Art Experience” before it heads to Miami Beach, Florida for “Art Basel”…
