JULIEN'S AUCTIONS PARTNERS WITH DESIGN CENTRE,
CHELSEA HARBOUR FOR FIRST UK PUBLIC DISPLAY OF
BANKSY'S ICONIC 'DONKEY DOCUMENTS'

Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour, London
20 September - 23 October 2015

Banksy's "Donkey Documents"

The owner of the original building was bemused when people crowded around his wall, but art aficionados had spotted Banksy's signature alert on his website of his latest work, 'Donkey Documents'. Banksy created the mural in 2007 with an aerosol can as part of a series of works of art along the concrete barrier separating the Palestinian West Bank and Israel. It is the largest, most significant intact mural from the artist's visit to Israel.

Banksy's poignant 'Donkey Documents' is reflective of modern times and is estimated to sell for $600,000 at the upcoming Julien's Street Art & Contemporary Art Auction in Beverly Hills, 30 September, 2015. The work is projected to sell to a private collector, making this is a unique and rare opportunity for the British public to see this work of art.

Banksy's "Sperm Alarm"

This is the perfect space to display 'Donkey Documents',' explains Darren Julien, founder of the eponymous Julien's Auctions, whose idea it was to give the mural a UK public view. 'Design Centre is the epicenter of innovation, so the mural is a natural fit.'

Design Centre Chelsea Harbour managing director, Claire German, is delighted to unveil 'Donkey Documents' during Focus/15, when their international showrooms launch their new design directions for autumn/winter. 'We are a nerve centre of many forms of creative expression. So we are proud to give Banksy's innovative works of art a temporary public home.'

'Sperm Alarm', a witty smaller-scale work of art by Banksy, will be shown alongside 'Donkey Documents'. It was originally sprayed onto the wall of the Hesperia Hotel, in Victoria, SW1. It will also be auctioned with 'Donkey Documents.'
