The mysterious graffiti artist Banksy, the most famous one in the world, has drawn the attention of people all over the world with his artwork in the streets of countless cities. Sometimes subversive and ironic, sometimes comical, but always fresh and original, Banksys art delivered once again with a visually stunning mural painting on a wall on West Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, California.
The piece features a close-up profile of the pretty face of a Billie Holiday, sleeked back black hair, shiny earrings, and a bright rose-colored flower in her hair. Her eyes are shut, and she appears to be singing or yelling with big, bold black letters in all caps written next to her face: LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL.
The meaning of the piece is unclear. It is worth noting that there appear to be bars on the wall covering a window between the woman's face and the lettering, which call jail bars to mind, but perhaps the simple message next to the woman's face says it all. This piece of work is painstakingly reproduced on canvas preserving vivid colors of the original Banksy's art. Stretched around pine frames by hand, it will be a focus point of any room where it is displayed.
There are lots of different ways to put a canvas on a wall. We believe that your journey with us begins long before your artwork arrives at your door. We believe in using some of the best material available to insure that your experience with your art is superlative from the first day through decades to come.
It all starts with the work of art, regardless of it being the Mona Lisa or your child on a beach! Our group of graphics experts uses industry leading software and techniques to make sure the image is transferred in the highest possible resolution, color correctness and vibrancy.
We only use archival quality canvas and inks for our products. Our canvas is coated to provide superior color fastness, fade resistance and a degree of moisture resistance (don’t leave it out in the rain!). Bars for stretching the canvas are all sourced from respected mills and are kiln dried to minimize any moisture retention which may produce warping.
For gallery wraps, our trained craftsmen hand assemble the bars into frames, stretch the canvas over the frame and staple into place. Corner keys are inserted to allow you to adjust tautness should it ever become necessary…just gently tap the corner keys deeper into their grooves using a small hammer.
Once the finished product has been inspected and certified to be free from defects, we package your artwork and ship to you for a lifetime of enjoyment. Should you decide that your purchase did not meet your expectations, please contact us and we will gladly accommodate your return, exchange or refund. Your walls will thank you for a beautiful custom built Banksy Canvas!
