Via Gross Domestic Product

Street artist and celebrated prankster Banksy is launching his first physical store in London’s Croydon, but in typical Banksy fashion, all is not what it seems.

GDP or Gross Domestic Products is a temporary pop-up shop selling Banksy homewares’. According to a statement from the artist on Instagram, it has come about as the result of a legal battle with a greetings card company which has tried to seize legal custody of the name.

Banksy’ has been advised the best way to present this is to sell his own range of branded merchandise.’

Items will start from just £10 but visitors to the Croydon store won’t physically be able to enter the shop and purchases must all be made online.

‘The showroom is for display purposes only,’ says the artist.
