If you are familiar with Banksy‘s work, this homeware store is for you! Featuring Banksy‘s peculiar but exquisite modern art, this place promises to leave you entertained for awhile.
Tony the Frosted Flakes tiger sacrificed as a living room rug, wooden dolls handing their babies off to smugglers in freight truck trailers, and welcome mats stitched from life jackets: rather than offering an aspirational lifestyle, one South London storefront window depicts a capitalist dystopia.
Created by Banksy and appearing overnight, Gross Domestic Product is the latest art installation to critique global society’s major issues of forced human migration, animal exploitation, and the surveillance state.
This provocative art installation will be there for two whole weeks, so if you are anywhere around London, make sure you check this out!
In a statement about the project, Banksy explains that the impetus behind Gross Domestic Product is a legal battle between the artist and a greeting card company that is contesting the trademark Banksy holds to his contemporary art.
