ABOUT THE ART
Banksy "Save or Delete" original Greenpeace Print. Produced in 2002 on recycled paper stock. A rare opportunity to purchase an original, authentic print and collection of ephemera. Included in the sale is the all important set of 8 original stickers and stencil (Stencil not by Banksy), as they were meant to be issued.
This print was originally commissioned by Greenpeace to highlight the problems of global deforestation as part of their Save or Delete campaign. The image, which features some of the main characters from Disney’s 'The Jungle Book', was transposed onto a picture of a devastated forest, intended for use on posters, billboards and postcards. While it was printed, it was never put into circulation because of legal threats by Disney. The original sold for £78,000, 11 January 2011, at Bonhams. Whilst the majority of the prints were sent to be recycled.
