Banksy has taken over a store in Croydon to display, and later sell some of his art, including Stormzy's Glastonbury 2019 stab vest.
Banksy claimed ownership of Stormzy's stab vest on the day of his headline performance at Glastonbury 2019.
Now the elusive artist has put some of his famous pieces in an empty store in Croydon which is named Gross Domestic Product. The shop doesn't actually open and is more of a display for the pieces he plans to sell in a few weeks time.
Revealing the news on Instagram, Banksy wrote, "This showroom is for display purposes only. I’m opening a shop today (although the doors don't actually open). It’s in Croydon. Probably best viewed at night."
The last image is a statement about the shop, which reads, "This shop has come about as a result of legal action. A greeting cards company are trying to seize legal custody of the name Banksy from the artist, who has been advised that the best way to prevent this is to sell his own range of branded merchandise."
The statement adds, "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 hand made in the UK using existing or recycled materials wherever possible. Including the ideas."
