Banksy Love Rat from the rats series, is one of the most iconic of Banksy’s Prints that carries a kind of organic gravity making a connection with people on a basic level,
It first made a public appearence as graffiti work on a street in Liverpool, England.
The prints of Love Rat came up for sale in 2004 for the first time. The work shows us a rat handling a brush of disproportionate size after apparently having just painted a red heart on the wall. Although rats have become something of a motif in Banksy’s work and seem to fascinate him, the rat in Love Rat (in comparison with Gansta Rat) has a very different personality, visual representation and facial quality.
