About the piece, and our management of it:
Painted 2003 - salvaged 2004. Location Liverpool.
Street artist Banksy has never been shy of making a political statement and in 2003 he created ‘Secured’. Spray painted on plywood and measuring 90” in length and 48” wide, the piece shows a security guard with a moustache with the slogan reading ‘SECURED by sleepy migrant workers on minimum wage ‘
Is it a coincidence that this design appeared around the time of the Olympic security fiasco? Created in Liverpool during the Biennial and regeneration of the city prior to its three year development plan leading to the Capital of Culture award. After it was salvaged the piece spent its early life as back board for a D.I.Y shelving
