In this case I believe a map would be more appropriate.

Nice find, thanks, pick the panda one up tomorrow

Yes,as long as it doesn't exceed Royal Mail Size/Weight Guidelines

Do they have penguin ones too?

Exit via the pound shop

Is this online too does anybody know? P.S heat added

Pretty sure that these will have been ripped off from Banksy and that he won't be seeing a penny.

So if you're up for owning one because you like the design and couldn't give a monkeys about who designed it, this is for you.

On the other hand, if you're buying it to be remotely supportive of Banksy or because you like the counter-culture he's meant to stand for, you'll actually be playing into the mindless consumerism that a lot of his work speaks out against.

Yup there's no such thing as official Banksy merchandise.
Unless you're paying through the nose for an offical print or even a painting. Or if you're one of these lucky guys:

Or, if you're into following the crowd and buying a street artists work, rather than a true graffiti artists then this may be for you. I suggest buy one, Banksy has made enough money off the back of it anyway while the real artists go unknown.

I bought one of these for my girlfriend as part of her Christmas presents, despite being the cheapest present, it was her favourite because she's an art student and enjoys banksy's art, it doesn't mean we're playing into mindless consumerism, it just means a mug with art on it is a good gift for an art student.

I like Pandas..
and guns..

These have been instore on and off for a year. Good quality mugs btw. They also had coasters wuth the kissing policemen in ours.

Nice!

As weird as it is to commercialise something that supposedly stands for counter culture, the Che merchandising opened that door long ago.

Banksy is a real street artist. Just a very successful one.
But not the only one.
Or the best one.

My local HB has had these in since before Christmas. They are great value stocking fillers.

Banksy's since taken it down from the looks of things, but his website used to say something along the lines of: "If you see anything available to buy in shops with my work on it, it's nothing to do with me and you'll be paying someone who's just making money off my images." And then he had some links to images of work he's done that you could "print out for free."

Point being, one of his criticisms is that some people will do anything to make a quick buck.

(Or in this case, 99p).

You could easily argue that Banksy has to some extent legitimised decent street art. Whether he's got "rich enough" or not, at least his stuff actually has a message and is leagues better than moronic tagging or Shephard "Hey, don't rip off my ripped off images!" Fairey.

Banksy puts his art in public places, it's not protected and so seeing his original work turn up at auctions in america every other week is of little surprise.
I feel sorry for the guy as others are making money off his work.

He doesn't seem bothered though as I've never seen the auction sales challenged by him or anyone representing him. Ultimately it's graffiti. Very good graffiti which is why he's gained recognition and now it's defined as art.

If he wants to protect his works he should put it on a canvas in a gallery.

I have no argument that Banksy is a real street artist, he's just not a REAL graffiti (as in the art form) artist, most of his work is stencil, not freehand.

I couldn't disagree with this comment more, it's not graffiti, let alone very good graffiti, as I said in another post, most of his work is stencil not freehand, apart from his very early work in Bristol. Banksy is good at what he does, but, just because famous people buy his work and he's a political activist, does not make him a good graffiti artist. I suggest you type Aroe MSK into Google Images or even, Kem & Mef, early Mode2 the list is endless.

I think our definitions of graffiti differ. I'd count anything scribbled onto a wall as real.
Either way, these mugs suck.

Kind of a contradiction there, if he's not into consumerism and doesn't do it for the money then why should he or I mind if he's not seeing a penny?

I don't think he does care. Otherwise he would have done something about this widescale bootlegging. He clearly doesn't care and it doesn't affect him.

If you look at the argument on a balance sheet, then yes you're right but that's not what it's about. It's about what it says about us, and if you look at the things he's saying in his art/graffiti/stencils/vandalism (delete as per your personal view) then it's hard to argue with him.

I like his work and if he doesn't do it for money (and I'm sure he could make a lot if he wanted to) then shouldn't he and I be happy if his work and ideas are being propagated even if he doesn't get a share of the profits? At 99p a mug you can't exactly call it profiteering.

I imagine he'd say he's propagating his work exactly how he wants when he chooses his locations, and does his own private work like the book, etc. And I would also probably say that the customers of Home Bargains are probably not his target audience. But still, this is all partly taken from what he himself used to say on his website (now taken down) and the fact that we're debating his art on a mug on a 99p on a deals website probably also means he'd say that to his message has partially failed
