Help Us Capture Banksy

Not 'capture' in a 'behind bars' kind of way of course. We mean capture as in 'document'.

We've slowly been building up a decent archive of Banksy photos over in our Londonist pool for a while now (thanks mainly, it must be said, to the tireless efforts of Sunshine Indoors).

But we'd like to expand on this wealth of data, try and amass the 'complete set' as it were, and than maybe map the results on a Platial map like we have with our Londonist Stalks series.

So if you can spot gaps in our Banksy library then let us know (maybe post at thread in our Flickr group) and if you've got any images you think would help fill those gaps, even better.

If you're interested in a Banksy stalk of your own we should tell you that the effort pictured has turned up recently on the Pentonville Road (the Angel end).

I've spotted him laughing all the way to the bank. Do the huge posters advertising his book in every Tube station count as "sightings"? Or are sales slipping, which is why Londonist is giving him more free publicity?

Banksy - what a cunt.

As you were.


I wish you lot would stop giving this prick the attention he craves.

i really like the buggers stuff but can't help but agree that he's probably a tosser - just reading stuff about caliper boy and the pure evil lot put me right off there scrawls (apart from the pure evil cats - they're just too loveable).
if you want to hate more banksys there's even more on the flickr thing now.
