Boy Drawing Robot kids' contrast hoodie


£16.99

The Banksy piece, Boy Drawing Robot, upon which this Banksy kids Boy Drawing Robot hoodie is based, was originally discovered on the side of a hotel in Torquay, Devon.

The Banksy street art piece shows a boy dressed as a robot, a box on his head, drawing a robot on the wall around an air vent.  The vent is the robot's eyes.

The piece was ruined in 2011 when vandals broke the perspex protective cover and poured acid over the paint, completely erasing the boy.  Only the robot remained unmelted.

It is speculated that Banksy himself destroyed the piece, in protest to the news that the piece had added £150,000 to the value of the hotel.

Afterwards, while renovating the hotel, to preserve the rest of the piece, the hotel owners covered up the artwork with a solid wooden panel and painted over the top.
