no worries, in case anyone was wondering these were in the brislington Bristol branch
They had banksy keyrings in my local store yesterday for 49p, I didn't notice the magnets.
Damn, don't have a home bargains in Winchester, was one in Hull before I moved ... Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
Brighton needs Home Bargains!!!!!!!
Who is actually making money off these (apart from home bargains) ? I don't think Banksy has actually endorsed any of this stuff.
Nooooo, I want these so bad. Why do I have to be away from home?
I'm surprised this site promotes illegal unauthorised goods...
Banksy would laugh at anyone buying these.

Bought all 9 from a Hull store, they weren't even out on the shelf so you might have to ask!

Perhaps he gets the money from a third party, i.e. his agent?
he does get paid for stuff. but I don't believe that most off the small merchandise is authorized. tbh - I don't see him doing this. books, exhibitions, auction that kind of things - yes

I sincerely doubt it. I'm pretty sure he's said in the past that none of this tat is licensed from him, so this is basically just ripping off the best UK street artist there is.

The company i work for has done loads of Banksy products like these magnets. Ashtrays, lighter holders, wall clocks,canvas prints. Its a bit of a grey area, we have not received a cease and desist, and no money goes to the artist.

I saw these magnets at the Birmingham NEC spring fair, quite garish.
don't think he can claim a lot of the works as he's breaking the law doing Graffiti
Why would you want these on your fridge, they look absolute sh@
nice one
Quite a good idea, rip off someone that wants to stay anonymous.

Man I was there last night! :-(
Love banksy hope my store has em
As well as the keyrings they also have 4 pack of coasters for 59p and double insulated travel mugs for £1.79 with same designs.
doesnt he use a stencil?. i dont think him been made public will affect his popularity?. Lets call me bob smith from sheffield :-D
Banksy did entitle one of his pieces "I Can't Believe You Morons Actually Buy This Sh*t." Say no more.
if the images are taken from works on the street they are copyright free (hence banksy logo is the old style (bristol era) logo off the street and photoshopped up etc + same with other images!)
love banksy
Banksy is not an artist & was old passe news even 10 years ago. He is just liked by morons who go with old washed up media hype not knowing anything about contemporary cutting edge fine art & are without brain or taste just like Posh & Becks who bought his crapp. Others do some good work as I see every day in my neighborhood, mainly the followers of King Robbo who was beaten to near death & long term coma by Banksy's well known agents' paid street lackeys as the Channel 4 documentary showed, but there was more. Banksy is talentless and nasty.

They look like they have been drawn/coloured in by a 12 year old.
If you are in the modern art world, you will know graffiti died a long long time ago & Banksy (or non-graf businessman Hirst) are already dismissed as insignificant figures in Art History. Keith Haring's talented friend Basquiat © took over as king & his canvases sell for many millions each and rightly so but that graffiti phase, which Bristol is still unaware of, finished in the 80's when he died @ 28:

A lot has happened since then & is, enjoy the magnets.

I once asked Banksy to autograph my garden wall - he didn't - and it took me ages to rebuild the bloody thing!
Re: peeps worrying about mega rich Banksy not getting royalties:
- The magnet lettering starts not with a B but a 3 & ends not exactly with SY, just in case
- More importantly the guy became famous on these images and made tens of millions but never paid a penny to the photographers/film makers of these famous images he ripped off. So worry about your family not him.

You can google:images Banksy or anyone you like, Warhol Pollock or other famous ones, and print on photo paper then stick/spray-glue on card (even from packaging boxes) or even laminate. If printing larger than A4, use these (some freeware) to stop pixelation:

Why does anyone in the public eye have to be media hype? Just because alot of people like someone/something it doesnt mean they are stupid, or dim or brainless just for liking that someone/something. His work is clever, like it or not, that is the reason he has managed to become so widely known more so than any other street artist. Also, claiming everyone is not IN THE KNOW makes you sound like a tw*t, a jealous tw*t at that.

1- You insult me but as the wise know only morons sans logic & failed in debate insult.
2- BTW he called people like you who spend money on his ripped-off images MORONS too, so just quoting your name-giver hero labeling you as you gladly accept from him!
3- How does that follow that I said everyone famous is bad? Sherlock? Not all fame is hype, Einstein Picasso Gandhi or Mandela are famous but deservedly so. There is a huge difference to hype in UK but these basic facts children grasp are beyond your black & white foaming mouth.
4- Not in his game, so couldn't care less, he is laughed at but others who make much more money than him are respected by many including me. So you're describing your own envy & other characteristics ie: classic counter transference (self projection).
5- There are specialists in every field, lawyers surgeons aeronautics etc., so your point that your ignorance of the field combined with your fatwas is a rare great talent is...? That's right, as he said.
6- Basically you have no taste, would like to tell your friends you have & are knowledgeable in the area but in reality do not know jack & just following the sheeple in order to belittle people around you with your bluff in taste/knowledge which is obviously lacking from your constant twitching due to an inferiority complex.

Have a nice day.

Don't worry. When you moved none of the Hull stores closed down. They are ...

Kingston Shopping Centre, Holderness Rd. Hull

St Andrews Retail Park, Hessle Road, Hull

North Point Shopping Centre, Bransholme, Kingston Upon Hull

Taken from his website.

A lot of his pictures are on there for you to do what you want with. Granted you couldn't get a fridge magnet made for 19p, but just clarifying what people are speculating about.

I massively disagree. It's not about the images he uses, but how he uses them and the comments he makes on society. Not many artists at all are able to sum up the **** and hypocrisy of daily life, but he does it perfectly. And these fridge magnets are a sadly ironic footnote.
