Following the revelation that THE REAL NOT BANKSY is in fact a pro-Brexit 13-year-old girl from Scunthorpe – the abandoned illegitimate child of THE “REAL” BANKSY intent on undermining her father’s liberal snowflake neo-Marxist woolly do-gooder politics (whilst, like all xenophobic neo-Fascists, secretly only wanting to be held and loved) – we are pleased to present this authentic no-nonsense fake to once and for all silence all the NOT BANKSY imposters and pretenders out there.
Is it possible to milk a dead rat, or lead a dead rat to be flogged?
flog a milked dead rat being lead to jump the shark whilst gilding the lily?
will this be the last straw that broke the rat’s back?
is it, perchance, to throw a perfume on the violet, to smooth the ice, or add another hue unto the rainbow, or with taper-light to seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish, wasteful and ridiculous excess?
Any-which-way, there is only one REAL NOT BANKSY and she’s much more righteously disenfranchised, funnier, cleverer and more dank than the rest of ya. Suck it up kids.
THE REAL NOT BANKSY is not real. There is no unloved 13 year old girl from Scunthorpe (right-wing or otherwise) making NOT BANKSYartworks. THE REAL NOT BANKSY is an invention of the INTERNATIONAL NEO NOT BANKSY ANARTIST ALLIANCE (I.N.N.B.A.A.). The I.N.N.B.A.A. is an international alliance of NOT BANKSY fraudsand NOT the real NOT BANKSY. As we all know, the real NOT BANKSY is dead, as is NOT NOT BANKSY (rumoured to have been assassinated by Pest Control). As there is NO REAL NOT BANKSY to make new works of art by NOT BANKSY, the INTERNATIONAL NEO NOT BANKSY ANARTIST ALLIANCE has fabricated THE REAL NOT BANKSY FRONTand invited L-13’s specially untrained technician’s in the MANGéL PrESS Department to aid and abet this new production.
All I.N.N.B.A.A. artworks will be quality checked and stamped by an I.N.N.B.A.A. official, signed with a fake STOT21stCplanB thunderbolt man, and issued with THE REAL NOT BANKSY Pest Control COA.
L-13 screen-prints are not slick lifestyle products: more the work of vandals, hooligans and artists than interior designers. These prints have the requisite amount of misprint and offsetting, overprinting and physical abrasion. They may have additional finger prints, smudges, tears, dents, and other marks that bare testimony to their making. The hip will find this beautiful and the squares will find it abhorrent.
