Banksy's Pest Control...


In attempts to end the bootlegging and the resale of his illegally placed street pieces, BANKSY, has created an official certification board to authenticate his artworks prior to resale...No, I'm not joking.
Named 'Pest Control', the Banksy-appointed committee has declared that all major resellers of his work must consult them first before any secondary market work can be considered truly authentic.
A member of Banksy’s camp stated,
'The works are made for specific sites, and taking them is tantamount to theft. That is why Banksy has approved this authentication system. He certainly doesn’t want the people who’ve removed them making money out of it'.

This decision comes after three inauthentic works attributed to Banksy went on sale at Bloomsbury Auctions in London without prior certification.
