Banksy has Opened an Online Store

Arguably the best known artist on the planet (even though very few people actually know who he/she is) - Banksy is selling originals.

From NME

The site boasts an array of “art, homewares and disappointment” with the artist claiming to have “price fixed the first releases for lower income patrons”. adding that “wealthy art collectors are requested to refrain from shopping at the current time”.

Some of the products on the site are available for as little as £10, along with signed original art prints which start from £500.

To deal with demand outstripping supply and to give everyone a fair chance, potential buyers are asked to register their details and “prove you are not a robot” by answering the question “Why does art matter?”

Their response will then be judged by comedian Adam Bloom, who is urging customers to make their answer as “amusing, informative or enlightening as possible”.

Hoping this measure will help restrict sales to genuine art fans, Banksy adds: “We can’t ever weed out all the people who just want to flip for profit, but we can weed out the unfunny ones.”

If you don't know Banksy - or haven't seen the Banksy movie - it's worth watching
