The theory started gaining traction after a netizen claimed that Banksy artworks appeared in places where former “Art Attack” host Neil Buchanan’s former band would perform.
The famously anonymous global street artist's situation shows how hard it is for graffiti writers to avoid getting ripped off.
Banksy came to Port Talbot, Wales, just days before Christmas.
The stencil was jacked from the music venue where 90 people lost their lives in a 2015 attack.
Another year, another reminder not to touch the art.
The destroyed painting has also officially been renamed.
Because of course they are.
Other art collectors are now considering shredding their own Banksy's to increase the value.
“We’ve just been Banksy’ed,” a Sotheby's director said.
The print was stolen from a Toronto exhibit housing the anonymous artist's “anti-capitalist” work.
This whole situation has shades of a Banksy stunt from the early 2000s but the real story behind the bills may be way less sexy.
