Lot Essay


This is a unique hand-painted maquette which inspired the subsequent edition Rough Sleeper. These stencil-spraypainted wooden cut-outs, were created in a smaller size (220 x 530 mm.) and produced in an edition of 25. The edition was then released in an 'art drop' around the streets in Brick Lane and Mayfair in 2010.

In 2015 the artist created the Sleeping Baby mural at Homerton University Hospital, Hackney, London, which was based on the composition of Rough Sleeper.

This design is one of the most well-known and beloved figures in the artist's oeuvre.
