Lot description
This work is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity from Pest Control.
This early Banksy print entitled "Because I'm Worthless" is perhaps one of Banksy's most famous images. Banksy's rats are his most recognizable image, and he has used them countless times in public works in many different cities. The rat symbolizes his anti-capitalist beliefs and represents the everyday working man. This work is from the unsigned edition of 175, rather than the edition of 75, which is signed. Originally the rat was thought to be an anagram for art, although Banksy later admitted that this was an afterthought.
