Original artwork description:

Urban Pop art in your own home by cult artist Sly.

ART POLICE
"I have noticed that in all walks of like if you do something different, something innovative and new the forces of vested interest crawl out from beneath their rocks of mediocrity and drag it down and try to drown it before it is born. Even in the world of art, where the new is expected, the self appointed Art Police cruise the gutters of self-importance to impose their opinion on others. Of course, if what you do really catches on they will be right behind you and have been from the start. Ha!" ...Sly

These are not prints as each is individually done and signed to order and consequently vary a little from the illustrated picture. These paintings are sprayed onto canvas 20 mm thick and ready to hang.

These are not prints, as each is individually painted and signed to order and consequently will vary slightly from the illustrated picture. These paintings are sprayed onto a handmade "Urbox,” or urban box, covered in newspaper cuttings and are handmade by people who wish to work to supplement their income. The boxes measure 59x76x4 cm, look really cool, rough with an urban feel, and are ready to hang, so there is no need to buy an expensive frame.

(Also available on The Daily Telegraph, watercolour paper or plain paper at various prices if you search elsewhere.)

Juan Sly is likely the biggest seller of original artwork in the UK. An artist exhibiting in spray stencils, newspaper and oils, he has exhibited at the Saatchi (a proper gallery with pillars and everything!) alongside the likes of Banksy, Terry O'Neil, Tracy Emin and Vic Reeves, and has permanent collections in Ireland, Detroit and England, alongside Damien Hirst and some other artists you might have heard of, plus private collections around the globe. His works rock from humour to anti-war, sex to surreal. He is particularly fond of the stencil medium as it allows him to respond quickly to events and ideas and gives his works a gritty, illegal look. The stencils naturally allow the works to be resprayed, and consequently become affordable and disposable. He likes the fact that people can buy art which they like, and not to show off how much they can afford. You can find them in bedsits, legal offices in the Temple or stuck to a fence in Bristol.
