A message from Banksy’s lawyer
Banksy has a much publicised casual attitude towards recreational copyright infringement and you are invited to download whatever you wish from this site for personal use. However, making your own art or merchandise and passing it off as ‘official’ or authentic Banksy artwork is a criminal offence. As a result of complaints from members of the public several investigations are now under way by the Police and Trading Standards into incidents of fraud. These are conducted irrespective of the views of the artist and are treated extremely seriously by the authorities. Successful prosecutions may result in a custodial sentence.
Banksy has never produced greeting cards, mugs or photo canvases of his work. He is not represented by any of the commercial galleries that sell his work second hand (including Lazarides Ltd, Andipa Gallery, Bank Robber, Dreweatts etc) and he does not own or run a bagel bar.
Banksy cannot be found on facebook/twitter/myspace etc.
