Banksy opens a store in London, but is forbidden to enter

Gross Domestic Product is the name of the store Banksy has opened in London. Forbidden to enter inside; products for sale online can only be seen from the windows

In Croydon, a suburb of London, a store has appeared that does not allow visitors inside, but whose exhibits are visible only from the windows.

Gross Domestic Product is written on the sign: it displays artwork and decorated objects and was opened by Banksy, the famous street artist about whose identity mystery still hovers.

The store appeared on the premises of aformer carpet store and will remain “on display” for the next two weeks, but in a statement hung in the window it was written that the products will be for sale through an online store that will be available in the coming days.

Banksy himself apparently stated that the store was opened for legal reasons, as a greeting card company is trying to steal the rights to his art and use his name to sell their Banksy-signed fake merchandise, while the proceeds from the online sale will apparently be used to purchase a new Ngo ship.

Among the items featured are a rug that references Tony the Tiger, the tiger mascot of Kellogg’s cereal, a cradle with surveillance cameras, life jackets, a game of loading migrants onto a transport truck, as well as mugs, T-shirts and other items decorated with some of the artist’s most famous works.
