This is the rarest of the rare pictures by him as Obama was printed in vast numbers in various sizes etc , this is an ARTISTS PROOF , that came from Black Rat Press (gallery) in the arches of East London. They were the first gallery in England (Europe?) to show street / urban art as a serious fully fledged art form and supplied hundreds of prints to museums & worked closely with artists we all know and admire NOW , but often were unheard of when they started. Blek le Rat , Banksy , Nick Walker etc. I appeared on The Apprentice at their gallery when Pure Evil won his round for that team. One of the partners has now gone on to be half of Connor Brothers !!
It is signed in pencil on the right & AP by the artists hand on the left. You are welcome to inspect it in Brentwood – I’m closed Sunday , Monday & Thursdays.
It measures 24 x 18 inches (approx. 60.9 x 45.75 cm) and is the only example of this seminal work I can find on the market as Art Collectors , investors and Music fans all want it
