This week we had a VERY rare opportunity to see a Banksy in the gallery. Banksy is a British-based graffiti artist, political activist, film director, and painter. Since Banksy’s primary medium is graffiti I had never had the opportunity to see one in person and wow what a piece!
The client had another framed piece in her collection that she loved and wanted to find a similar frame for the Banksy. We ended up choosing a sleek silver frame with depth. The silver leaf finish was a very close match to the frame in her collection. The frame’s profile and finish really accentuated the lid of the soup can and had a clean museum look. We used 100% rag 8ply matting and UV protection to make sure this piece stays in pristine condition for years to come. There is something so exciting about a piece by a world famous artist coming into the gallery on a weekday. I have to admit that I had a major “art nerd” moment. So no matter if we are framing a $20 dollar poster or a Banksy we are up to the challenge! We hope to see you in the gallery soon with that fantastic $100 Custom Framing Gift Certificate.
