The Sincura Group have a long relationship with the art world and specialise in the curation, management, sale and exhibition of rare and exclusive artwork from classics to modern street art.
Sincura Arts are generally regarding as the world's leading expert of Banksy Artworks. Since 2010 we have been involved with 70% of all Banksy pieces appearing on the streets, from an advisory role with building owners and councils, to media and press engagements, to managing the safe removal and restoration of artwork and including the final sales and exhibitions. Though often controversial, we ensure our work is both ethically and morally sound and our sales of these pieces have both benefited local charities and ensured the longevity of the artwork.
2018 will see the launch of the world's first ever Street Art Museum. The museum will feature restored Banksy artworks, often saved from destruction, and donated by private collectors, with the ultimate goal of keeping them in public view for years to come. It will also act as a learning aid for school visits, and a way to showcase new and upcoming artists. the museum will launch as a pop-up in London for 2 weeks at the end of April 2018, 2 weeks in Liverpool in May, before finding it's permanent home in Barcelona, Spain from June 2018.
The full list of people will be revealed nearer the time but we are delighted to be showcasing Banksy's giant Liverpool Rat to the world for the first time after it's restoration. Banksy daubed the huge rat wielding a paint brush on a Georgian building in Liverpool as part of the city's Biennial art programme in 2004. The giant rat had been eroding for years, with large parts having peeled off with the plaster or vanished on rotted wood. The bottom half had been covered up by the Culture Company with hoardings because the building had fallen into disrepair. With growing fears over the feasibility of any kind of preservation, in May 2013 the work was removed to be restored and pieced back together. This is the largest and most expensive Banksy restoration process to date, with 18 months of painstaking work to bring the giant 34 foot rat back to its former glory. Despite numerous consultations with building experts, it soon became evident that once restored, placing the piece back on The White Horse pub would be an impossible task. The building no longer had the integrity itself to support the weight of the piece, let alone the installation process. The piece has been donated back to the museum for the public to once again enjoy.
The launch event will take place in the evening of May 2nd 2018 and will be for Sincura members, press, and invited VIP and celebrity clients. With live music and complimentary drinks throughout, for this very special event we will also be hosting the launch of new street fashion brand with a live catwalk running through the venue.
