  • RATS – Where Banksy got started.
  • RATS If Banksy had a patronus in Harry Potter, it would be a rat.
  • What do you associate rats with? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15.
  • “I'd been painting rats for three years before someone said 'that's clever it's an anagram of art' and I had to pretend I'd known that all along.”
  • “Brangelina” buys a Banksy! How much do you think Banksy’s artwork should cost? How much do you think this was purchased for?
  • How does Banksy sell his work and stayControl is a handling service anonymous? Pest acting on behalf of the artist BANKSY. We answer enquiries and determine whether he was responsible for making a certain piece of artwork and issue paperwork if this is the case. This process does not make a profit and has been set up to prevent innocent people from becoming victims of fraud. Please be aware that because many Banksy pieces are created in an advanced state of intoxication the authentication process can be lengthy and challenging. Pest Control deals only with legitimate works of art and has no involvement with any kind of illegal activity.

  • Promotional Rats Chinatown / SoHo 2008
  • What happens when a Street Artist/ Graffiti Artist/ Vandal makes a movie? Exit Through the Gift Shop
  • “There's no way round it— commercial success is a mark of failure for a graffiti artist. We're not supposed to be embraced in that way. When you look at how society rewards so many of the wrong people, it's hard not to view financial reimbursement as a badge of self-serving mediocrity." Quote 1
  • Quote 2 "Obviously people need to get paid—otherwise you'd only get vandalism made by part-timers and trust-fund kids," Banksy says. "But it's complicated, it feels like as soon as you profit from an image you've put on the street, it magically transforms that piece into advertising [not art]. When graffiti isn't criminal, it loses most of its innocence."

"But it's complicated, it feels like as soon as you profit from an image you've put on the street, it magically transforms that piece into advertising [not art]. When graffiti isn't criminal, it loses most of its innocence." SO LET’S LOOK AT SOME “INNOCENT” ILLEGAL ART Quote 2
  • Keepin’ it real with the battle! King Robbo is an English underground graffiti artist who became more widely known following a graffiti war with Banksy. [1] There had been a previous meeting between Robbo and Banksy in the nineties during which Robbo claimed he slapped Banksy,[2] a claim Banksy denied.
  • Collaboration with King Robbo Back in 1985, graffiti artist King Robbo painted one of London’s earliest pieces in a well known tunnel in Camden. You can see the piece above in all of its original glory.
  • Collaboration with King Robbo By 2006, the piece had been heavily abused. Scrawled, sprayed, tagged, the original was barely visible.
  • Collaboration with King Robbo December 2009: Enter Banksy stage right. Suddenly there’s a worker spotted ‘wallpapering’ up the graffiti. Robbo is outraged and the battle begins. Reminiscent of the ridiculous East/West coast rap battles of yore, the move stirs up conflict between street art vs graffiti.
  • Collaboration with King Robbo December 25, 2009: After a multi-decade hiatus, King Robbo strikes back on Christmas Day. Insulted and rejuvenated, the King is back and he’s pissed. The media machine starts to salivate. Graffiti folklore about an encounter in the late 90′s between King Robbo and Banksy emerges. The details are hazy but apparently when Banksy was introduced to Robbo, he claimed he had never heard of him and had no idea who he was. Legend has it that Robbo delivered a stern backhand to a then unknown Banksy, proclaiming: “You may have never heard of me but you’ll never forget me”
  • Collaboration with King Robbo 2010: A few months pass and Banksy finally retorts. Curious onlookers perk up, this is going to get spicy…
  • Collaboration with King Robbo • 2010: King Robbo is having none of it. A subtle rebuttal if you will.
  • Collaboration with King Robbo • 2010: Fade to black. An anonymous third-party enters the fray and blacks out everything. Could be the city council or perhaps someone just stirring the pot (or trying to end the pettiness), who knows.
  • Collaboration with King Robbo • July 2010: King Robbo strikes again! Everybody wins.
  • Collaboration with King Robbo • 2010: A sad trombone is heard in the distance as another all-black intervention appears. Onlookers collectively shake their fist at the sky.
  • Collaboration with King Robbo • January 2011: Banksy returns with a head-scratching goldfish piece. Some kind of living room that nobody knows what to think of. At least he incorporated the decrepit chair.
  • Collaboration with King Robbo April 2, 2011: With his career again in the spotlight, King Robbo suddenly and tragicall sustains a life-threatening head injury. Sadly was only 5 days before his exhibition at the Signal Gallery, Shoreditch: ‘Team Robbo – The Sell Out Tour’. He is believed to still be i an induced coma and conspiracy theorists have run amok as to the cause. But the offic word is that it was an accidental fall. Battle aside, we all hope he recovers.
  • Collaboration with King Robbo • November 2011: Banksy throws up an ode to King Robbo’s original. A single, flammable spray can displayed as a vigil. As with all art, the interpretation is left to the viewer.

  • Does Banksy have “street cred” anymore? He sells work for millions of dollars vs. He puts up illegal artwork for free Which do you think makes him a “great” artist?
