Sickboy has announced the release of a limited edition collection of original, hand-painted replicas of his most iconic street work — the wheelie bin. Based on a decade’s worth of the artist’s street activities, each replica model is an exact reproduction of the original work as it appeared on real wheelie bins worldwide. Produced in red and bearing the artist’s signature Temple logo in McDonald’s colours, these replicas offer a rare chance to own a piece of Sickboy’s street art history. Produced in a highly-collectable run of 20, each boxed wheelie bin has been individually hand-painted by Sickboy and is presented with a signed and dated photo-print of its on-street counterpart.
Sickboy said: “Wheelie bins are my favourite surface to paint on. The shape of the temple fits perfectly, and the classic red issue colour of the bins was like a gift from above. Trying to paint something pretty on a vestibule for public waste was what drove the obsession. Over the years I have amassed an interesting collection of photographic documentation of my wheelie bin work, and the best of these have been revisited for this project.”
I missed out on one but am not bothered by the edition size at all. In fact I like that its small, it means 20 people got a nice gem. You cant have every single artist flooding the market with editions in the hundreds!
Keep editions small I say and allow for people to actually have different pieces in their collections!
