Named Gross Domestic Product, one of the most famous Graffiti artists, the artist without face, Banksy, has launched an online shop selling products including riot helmets turned into disco balls and the stab-proof vest he designed for Stormzy.
The online shop went online on 17 October, just a few weeks after the artist announced the launch of his own merchandise line with a pop-up shop installation in Croydon, UK.
Banksy claimed that he was forced to release the branded merchandise following legal action from an unnamed greeting-card company that was trying to “seize legal custody” of his name.
Products on sale range from as little as £10 for an empty spray paint can to £850 for the Union Jack stab-proof vest that British rapper Stormzy wore during his headline set at this year’s Glastonbury festival and a non-functional clutch bag made from a brick.
A print made in homage to late American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, a rug designed to look like the corpse of Tony the tiger and a ceiling mounted baby mobile with rows of novelty CCTV cameras attached to it are also on sale.
