Bunny Boy by Faile to auction for $50,000

Bunny Boy, an urban artwork by street art collective Faile, is to auction online at Artnet Auctions

Bunny Boy, a large scale, mixed media artwork by Faile - originally an artistic trio comprising American street artists Patrick McNeil, Patrick Miller and founding member, Aiko Nakagawa - is to auction online as part of Artnet's Street Life auction, which ends on April 30.

Dated 2003, the work features Faile's trademark fragmentation and layering techniques.

Anticipated to bring $50,000, the Faile-signed canvas represents a rare, formative work, indicative of the trio's importance to pop art.

Since Nakagawa left Faile in 2006, pieces consisting of work by all three original members have increased in value.

An untitled original mixed media on paper by the collective sold for $11,000 in April 2013.

UK sales of street art by prominent artists remain strong. Banksy's Monkey Detonator sold for 139,250 ($213,037) at Bonhams earlier this month.
