American fashion brand Guess has a new collection featuring Banksy artwork prints. The anonymous artist only accuses the brand of having done this without his permission.

“Beware of shoplifters. Please go to Guess on Regent Street. They stole my artwork without asking, how could it be wrong for you to do the same with their clothes ?” Banksy wrote. to his 11.6 million followers on Instagram.

Marketing stunt

Following the appeal of famous British artist Banksy, the London Regent Street retail store kept the door, taped the windows and closed the business. Whether it was a marketing stunt is unlikely given Banky’s aversion to the consumer society.

Guess has yet to comment on the discussion, but says the collection was created in conjunction with an agency that licenses the work of graffiti artists.
