Do you mean this one? If so, it doesn’t look Banksy to me for these reasons:
- Banksy rarely paints feet.
- Banksy uses mostly vintage/retro personages in his art.
- Not confirmed by Banksy on his website.
- Style reminds me more of Jef Aerosol to be honest.
Hope this helps!

Hard to tell since yeah he did painted that piece. Personally I believe it’s legit :)
smoothlinesandstupidjokes said: Alright, I was doing some internet research on Banksy and some of these theories are quite confusing so I thought to ask. Is Banksy one singular person who is overseeing this whole worldwide operation or is Banksy a concept that a collective number of artists anonymously work under creating similar pieces that fit under a certain "style"? I was just asking because there was a convincing theory where the "original" Banksy only created one or two pieces.
Definitely not a concept, Banksy is one guy BUT over the years he has some people/friends assisting him when producing artworks. For instance, securing locations or helping him out with making the installations. Loads of artists work in creative teams that they lead.
