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.”

SPEC:

Each box contains an individually hand-painted Sickboy wheelie bin with
working lid, flap and wheels, plus a signed photo-print and embossed COA.

Dimensions: H19.5cm. x W16 x D12cm

Signed & Numbered Edition of 20

Price: £125.00 + P&P
