A new Banksy, in Tokyo?

Fellow urban artist, Invader, has several of his distinct works decorating Tokyo. A few of which can be seen here. Banksy, on the other hand, doesn’t. Or at least not any that are well documented. But could this finally be one?

And even if it isn’t, who’s watching who?

Banksy in Tokyo

    Very cool pic. Love how everyone is looking in different directions.

    But a Banksy? Don’t think so……

    I’m still waiting to spot one like that here in Vancouver. Would be nice to think it was a real Banksy.

    So happy to find your blog! It’s satisfying my travel bug to return to Tokyo (for the moment at least). And those pants are fabulous… I may have to make a pair for myself!

      Glad to hear it, Marion.

      There are plenty of shops that sell them, so you could save yourself some work.

    as nobody answer me I made some research directily to Banksy official site and this is the reply message I received :)

    Thanks for taking the time to write to Banksy, who is currently too busy doing charity work/helping the sick/drunk out of his mind* to reply in person.
    The work in the image isn’t by Banksy.
    Regards and good wishes

    Was it your work?↓ If not, I wonder if there are something of your graffiti in Tokyo.

    Wish you a great day

      Thanks, Isabella. And apologies for not replying. The general consensus seemed to be that it wasn’t a Banksy, but it’s good to have it confirmed.

      Cheers again for making the effort!
