Banksy Jubilee Special

“Celebrating sixty years of just waving and smiling and doing essentially naff all…”

To celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee Banksy has created a new piece called “Er…”. It’s currently available to download for free from the Pictures on Walls website.

Here’s what they say about it:

“An exclusive download for the more ambivalent patriot. Simply save off and take to your nearest branch of prestoprint where it can be transferred onto a mug, tea towel, or other quality item. Alternatively print onto a piece of paper, sellotape to a barbecue skewer and wave in an ‘ironic’ way at the Queen drives past.”
