THE PRINT

In a knowing nod to his own sudden popularity, Banksy hijacks a familiar image from another user-friendly commercial artist: Jack Vettriano. Sneered at by many in the art fraternity, Vettriano’s twee and pleasant prints are considered by some to be bland and vapid wall adornments that struggle to free themselves from their own uninspired malaise. In 'Crude Oil' Banksy remixes the popular Vettriano print Singing Butler by expertly diverting the situation to one on a beach stricken with spilled oil. Behind the dancing 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 show 'Crude Oils' promoted as a gallery of re-mixed masterpieces, vandalism and vermin 'Crude Oil' marked a new direction for the artist; in which he discarded the spray can in favor of new mediums. This premium quality giclee art print has been produced on luxurious 100% cotton rag textured art paper using archival quality inks resulting in a superior print suitable for museum or gallery display.

  • 300gsm 100% cotton rag textured art paper
  • Natural white with a matte finish
  • Archival inks for vivid colour and sharp detail
  • Available in multiple sizes 
  • Can be purchased framed or unframed

THE ARTIST

Banksy is the pseudonym of a British graffiti artist, political activist and painter, whose identity is unconfirmed. His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine irreverent dark humour with graffiti done in a distinctive stencilling technique. Such artistic works of political and social commentary have been featured on the walls of cities throughout the world.

FRAMING

Skip the trip to the framer and save yourself time and money. We offer a bespoke custom framing service that is far more affordable than using your local high street framer and light-years ahead in quality than the ready-made frames you will find in homeware stores. Please note that our framing service is currently only available to customers based in New Zealand and Australia. We will deliver your beautiful custom framed artwork to your door within 7 working days if you reside in New Zealand or 15 working days if you reside in Australia. Crude Oil works equally well with all three of our frame styles. Our black frame is the most popular option.
