Banksy encourages shoplifting

The mysterious street artist Banksy is outraged by the actions of the Guess fashion house. Because the company uses his motives, he calls for shoplifting.


Street artist Banky vents his frustration on Instagram, calling out the thieves. They should visit a Guess fashion house store.

Apparently angered by the use of one of his motifs, the mysterious street artist Banksy appears to have indirectly encouraged his fans to shoplift. The Briton posted a photo to his Instagram account on Friday, in which he is said to show off the window display of a fashion chain in London. There, the well-known Banksy “Flower Thrower” motif can be seen behind some items of clothing: a masked man who is about to throw a bouquet of flowers. The shop window reads: “Guess x Brandalised with Banksy graffiti.”

Banksy wrote: “Shoplifters, go to Guess on Regent Street. They used my art without asking. How can it be wrong if you do the same to their clothes?” By Friday night, more than 900,000 users had liked the post.
