Win the Banksy Figure from Mike Leavitt’s “Art Army”

To coincide with the end of Banksy‘s month-long street art exhibition “Better Out Than In,” we’re giving away the Banksy figure from renowned artist Mike Leavitt’s “Art Army” series. The figure is modeled on a piece Leavitt released in 2010 at the Stolen Space Gallery in London. The original was purchased for $2,500. This marks the first time any of Leavitt’s works have been recreated for public consumption.

The piece is based on an installation made by Banksy at Disneyland in which the English artist dressed an inflatable doll in the outfit of a Guantanamo Bay prisoner and then placed the doll within the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad ride for the park’s visitors to see.

For your chance to win:

Upload an original photo of street art on Instagram along with the hashtag #HSBanksy.

Although only one lucky participant will win the figure above, a limited number of figures will be released at Magic Bodega. Open exclusively for Highsnobiety readers, head over to the unique web shop and enter the password “fremeu” for a chance to get yours.

The contest runs from October 28 to November 1 and is open to global readers. The winner will be chosen at random. Participants must be 18 years of age or older.
