The pop-up show opened 1 October on Church Street in Croydon, just a few miles south of London.
In Banksy’s own words:
“This shop has come about as a result of legal action. A greeting cards company is trying to seize legal custody of the name Banksy from the artist, who has been advised the best way to prevent this is to sell his own range of branded merchandise.
So here it is – we hope to offer something for everyone, prices start from £10, but availability will be limited – all of these products are handmade in the UK, using existing or recycled materials, wherever possible. Including the ideas.”
