Banksy 3 works - pencil on paper. Circa 2002/3

Rare drawing "Riot Police" and 2 handwritten
Banksy letters with unique insight to the

artists way of marketing his own brand in the early days -
pre Lazarides.

provenance. Mr James Allen, Antwerpen, Belgium. He had a
shop at the time called Punk Daisy.

Gary Clive Mitchell - Former owner of TomTom Gallery (later
artrepublic). Banksy gift to the above.

The drawing shoes a window display formulated for a Banksy
show at TomTom Gallery in London (Banksys gallery

at the time), with ideas for the window
graphics/paint/artwork incorporating "Fuck da Police" and Banksy as
well as CND signs and a riot policeman or protester/vandal.

One sheet of text is an artist biography written in a
typical Banksy tongue-in-cheek, self-deprecating manner where

amongst other things he describes himself as "rapidly
establishing a reputation as Britain´s least wanted artist.

He also adds in an addendum that he does not "condone
vandalism or any other form of illegal activity" pre-emting any admission
of  grafitti/illegal activity.

The show never materialised at TomTom but was to take
another much larger form at the infamous "Turf War" show in Dalston
(East London) in 2003.
