Blek le Rat, a renowned street artist, created the original stencil of a rat that has become iconic on the streets of Paris since 1981. His influence on the street art scene has been widely acknowledged, including by the famous artist Banksy. In fact, Banksy himself has admitted that he often discovers Blek le Rat has already created something similar to his own work, sometimes 20 years prior, which speaks to the enduring impact of Blek le Rat’s art. In this particular screenprint, Blek le Rat pays tribute to his lifelong “rat” companion by turning him into gold, evoking connotations of opulence, success, accomplishment, victory, royalty, and good luck.
