BANKSY is one of the most important artists alive today. In January 2010 he visited Park City in Utah (USA), where he created this Rat stencil with 3D glasses on a concrete wall, amongst other stencils. The reason for his visit to Utah was the premiere of his film ‘Exit Through The Gift Shop’ at the Egyptian Theatre in Park City. Most of his spray paintings were destroyed afterwards by bad weather condition (snow) or vandalism by disgruntled artists.

Banksy himself reportedly once said of rats, “If you feel dirty, insignificant or unloved, then rats are a good role model. They exist without permission, they have no respect for the hierarchy of society, and they have sex 50 times a day.”.
