“The incredible true story of how the world’s greatest Street Art movie was never made…”
“Exit Through the Giftshop” is an Oscar nominated documentary of how an eccentric French amateur film maker attempted to locate and befriend the anonymous British graffiti/street artist Banksy. The documentary also featured other giants of the street art movement, including Shepard Fairey, Invader, Sweet Toof, Cyclops, Swoon, Ron English, and Buff Monster. The finished movie is a remarkable piece of film-making. The Belgian Affiche offered here was printed entirely in English and distributed to the Benelux countries of Belgium, Luxembourg and The Netherlands. and represents a Banksy designed piece that is often referred to as the ‘Mona Lisa in a shopping trolley’ style. Printed in remarkably small numbers for release in art-house cinemas, this is a marvellous opportunity to own an affordable example of Banksy’s artwork and a piece of original cinematic memorabilia presented in excellent original condition.
Trivia: The film had its unofficial UK premiere in an abandoned rail tunnel underneath London’s Waterloo station, an area devoted to graffiti and street art. Tickets for this sold out in a minute. A red carpet was spraypainted on the ground especially for the occasion, while spectators were all presented with tins of spray paint as they left the screening.
