Interior design trend spotting – Banksy style vinyl wall stickers

Who is Banksy and why do you want him on your wall?

Famed British political activist and graffiti artist Banksy is well known in the U.K. for his controversial use of graffiti in public places. He has been on the scene for about 20 years and is not for hire- all of his work is either painted out of inspiration on canvas, or as statements on public walls and highly visible areas.

Banksy has inspired a generation of graffiti artists (which is far different than gang signs tagging bridges and the like) and is a pop icon whose work has frequently been replicated either on public walls in America or simply on t-shirts abroad. What we’re getting at is that his work is iconic, highly recognizable, and exclusive. You can’t exactly hire him to come to your house and paint a trendy mural in your loft.

Why you should brush up on this trend

But if you love Banksy and want to be up on interior design trends, or you want to be able to point your clientele in the right direction as they list or buy a home, or if you want a simple way to stage a listing without painting walls trendy colors, use of some Banksy art that is less subversive might do the trick.

British Etsy.com shop, The Binary Box offers a series of affordable vinyl wall stickers that are an homage to Banksy’s work and are not only trendy, but great conversation starters and focal points.

    Interesting take on vinyl wall decals. The Panda is cool in an adult kid way.
