World Banksy says that most "Banksy" works are fake

Today we would like to tell you a story. It’s an intriguing one. One that may raise more questions than answers. It’s a tale of alleged conspiracy, lies and the most famous living artist in the world… Banksy.

Let’s start at the beginning
On September 17th 2019, we released an article written by UK artist Paul Kneen, questioning who the real artist was behind the £10m painting, Devolved Parliament.

It was a question no one else seemed to be asking. In fact, it felt like no one cared who did it. It said Banksy on the bottom, therefore it must have been painted by him.

This simple question resulted in a phone call from Chris Hastings at The Mail on Sunday who had been made aware of the article from a friend in the US. He felt our observations made a very interesting point and he wanted to run a story… which he did. In fact, it resulted in a full page spread. That was Sunday 13th October.

We never expected Paul Kneen’s article would have resulted in a full page spread in the Mail on Sunday

For us here at CreativeFolk, we high-fived each other and celebrated this exciting event. We wondered what, if anything, would come of this and even joked whether Banksy himself might have seen it.

It’s time to keep an open mind
On Wednesday 16th October the phone rang.


“Hi, is that CreativeFolk”.

“Yes, it is”.

“You guys wrote the original article that resulted in the story in the Mail on Sunday, right?”.

“That’s us. Sorry who are we speaking to?”.

“Well, I’m someone who represents the real Banksy”.

    Dinobot was one of the youngest of the MVPs tkron probably could have worked for Blizzard but he had a good job in Chicago doing business programming already

    lol I live in CA
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    I've got some friends in animation department who have been applying for Blizzard, doing interviews and such. They said the workplace seems nice, though now it'd be all remote work I suppose
  • The Helper The Helper:
    good for them I live close to Austin and am trying to get my kids interested in getting into Games but not having much luck. I would never let them move to Cali.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    unless it was huge money
  • The Helper The Helper:
    and even then with the taxes I really could never let them move there
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    Haha fair enough, I have no interest in CA at all as a living place either. Really only here just for the work in LA, but hopefully once I get settled enough in my work, I can move out
