Artist's description:

Street art in your own home by Cult Artist Sly.


The Vietnam War raged in ’69; newly-weds John Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono held two week-long Bed-Ins for Peace; one at the Hilton Hotel in Amsterdam and one at Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth in Montreal, each of which were intended to be non-violent protests against war. The public proceedings were filmed, and later turned into a documentary movie. The film Bed Peace was made available for free on YouTube in August 2011 by Yoko Ono, as part of her website "Imagine Peace".

The pair galvanized the population of the world and almost single handedly brought an end to The Vietnam war.
This painting, done with a series of stencils is the Popiconic moment they pose for the press and below is one of the ‘posters’ hand scrawled by Lennon himself and stuck around the walls.

This painting is created using multiple, overlayed stencils.

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 plain paper (approx. 56x76cm) and are ready to hang with crossbars and nails.

It is likely that Juan Sly has become the biggest seller of original artworks in the UK. An artist exhibiting in mainly spray stencils 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 now has a permanent collections in Germany, Detroit and the Uk, alongside Damien Hirst and some other artists you might of heard of plus private collections around the globe. His works rock from humour to anti-war, sex to surreal. Particularly fond of the stencil medium as it allows him to quickly respond to events and ideas and gives the work that gritty illegal look. The stencils naturally allow the works to be resprayed and so become affordable and disposable. He likes the fact that people can buy art that 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.
