Fakesy Not Banksy

Most definitely fake. Click the jump for more

MELROSEandFAIRFAX viewer Ryan Cooper has sent us pics of the rumored Banksy, and it is most definitely not a Banksy.

We were also sent a link from the Carlsbad Crawl where Carl does an excellent job breaking down why this is not a Banksy with pictures and descriptions. Thanks to Snyder for the tip.


  1. I have to say i've cut quite a few stencils in my life and can see that whoever cut these stencils was a total moron. They put needless bridges in. Bridges are added to hold pieces that would be cut out in...for example the insides of "O's" or P...but the bridges added in the leg, wrist and kite tail are not necessary at all.

    Just saying!!

  2. Nice catch "Anonymous" Giveaway a fake Banksy was the over simplified concept. No wit or irony in this.
