IN THE SHADOW
OF THE PEACE TOWER OF MIYAZAKI
THE DIVINE WIND OF
THE NEW NOT BANKSY REALISATION
A MYSTERIOUS PACKAGE WAS LEFT
IN THE EAVES OF THE
LIBERTY LIFESTYLE STORE
IN MIYAZAKI, JAPAN
THE PACKAGE INCLUDED
250 SCREEN PRINTS
AND A PAMPHLET
THAT POLITELY EXPLAINS
A NEW HISTORY
NEW NOT BANKSY REALISATION
THIS IS WHAT THE PAMPHLET SAYS
THIS IS WHAT THE PRINT LOOKS LIKE
WE BELIEVE IT SAYS
There seems to be a New Not Banksy Realisation
in the Land of the Rising Sun
*** THE PAMPHLET HAS BEEN TRANSLATED ***
A new dawn is NOT upon us!
A new NOT BANKSY has appeared in the
This is the new true story of the New NOT
In the shadow of the Peace Tower of Miyazaki
a rogue non-collective of Neo-No-Nothingist
NOT-Art InActivists has arisen to claim that
Banksy is NOT from Bristol, that NOT
BANKSY is NOT from Scunthorpe, that
STOT21stCplanB do NOT exist, and that all
three are in fact the invention of themselves: a
Japanese Radical-NOT NOT-Art sect intent on destabilising the dominance of Euro-
American Culture and exposing the Western orientated Art World as the calamitous force
for evil it truly is. This rogue non-collective sect of Neo-No-Nothingist Radical-NOT NOT-Art InActivists is known as Scorpion Thunderbolt of the 21st Century Plans C, D and E (STOT21stCplansCD&E).
With the publication of a NOT BANKSY
screen print edition to be made and sold in
Japan for the Japanese people, this normally
inactive and secretive non-collective have
made the following explanatory statement
about their activities.
“We STOT21stCplansCD&E, being a non-
collective sect of Neo-No-Nothingist Radical-
NOT NOT-Art InActivists, are the true New NOT BANKSY Realisation.
Our extreme form of non-collectivism was
born of the unawareness (and a flaccid
concrete irreality) in Japan that innovations in
suppression could not exist without worthless
inaction undertaken through deviant strategic disturbances. Whereas Nothingism and Neo-
Nothingism liberated NOT-art in a chained
discursive cage, it never liberated the Non-
artwork as a material Non-artifact or the Anartist as anti-creator. Keeping the decentrality of “Non-collectivism and Neo-No-
Nothingism” in mind, we capture and release two essential traits of Neo-No-Nothingism in
Japan: the “don’t do it yourself” spirit and the
“anti-social engagement” in the unawareness
of a broader public insignificance. Utilising
these ever-negating pulses of disenchantment
we publish this print as final proof of our
disbelief in all Western (and non-Western) art.
We tear it all down in our minds and rebuild
We are Fake, You are Fake, Banksy is Fake,
NOT BANKSY is Fake, This is Fake!
Long live NOTHING NOT!!”
STOT21stCplansCD&E, Miyazaki, November 2020
This statement was found with a pile of 250
prints on the doorstep of the Liberty lifestyle
shop and cafe in Miyazaki, with additional
instructions to sell the first 50 copies in Japan
and export the remaining 200 to be sold to ‘the West’ through their longstanding co-
conspirators, the L-13 Light Industrial Workshop.
NOT BY BANKSY BY THE NEW NOT
Just to be clear, all artworks by the New NOT
BANKSY Realisation and associated
activities by STOT21stCplansCD&E are NOT
by BANKSY and the real BANKSY has
nothing to do with any of the New NOT
BANKSY Realisation non-collective sects,
NOT-Art and NON-artifacts.

NEW YEAR STIRRINGS IN JAPAN
Following reports that the FAKE! graffiti at the Peace Tower of Miyazaki had been removed by the authorities, large crowds gathered to mourn and protest this grave loss to NOT-culture, and a candlelit vigil was held overnight.
Representatives of “LIBERTY”, the Miyazaki lifestyle shop and café, attended this vigil, and in the early hours of the morning were handed a package by a mysterious masked figure. Inside the package were 13 prints of many different colours and sparkles.
An accompanying note stated:
“These prints are all test pressings for a potential 2nd Edition of the infamous FAKE! artwork by us, the declared New NOT BANKSY Realisation of the Rising Sun.
We kindly request that all 13 unique prints should be offered for sale to the people of Japan as tokens of unity and peace (at a reasonable price), for the propagation of the Neo-Not-Nothingist agenda of the New World NOT-Disorder.
This sale should take place on 5th January 2021, and the price of the prints should be 40,000 Yen each.
When these test prints have been sold we may make a 2nd Edition of the FAKE! artwork.
If so, we will let the people decide which colours this 2nd Edition should be.
Over and out for 2020… May 2021 be NOTNOT-better.
These 13 unique prints in many colours and sparkles will go on sale from Gallery DNA 22:00 hr (Japanese time) 05/01/2021
