Looking like this will be it.

''We've been sitting on this for a while waiting for developments in glitter technology to catch up. And now that moment has arrived. A three colour print with various actual sparkly options on the mask"

Grabbed this from the Banksy board. The winter show opens shortly. No info on release, but it looks like it appeared in the winter show catalogue.

Banksy, the great screenprinter. He might have wanted to give a call to Malleus in 2007 if he wanted to master the glitter glue technology back then.

I like it though I would have preferred a print from his crayon series.
Here's hoping for at least a partial online sale

Am I missing something? Where is the usual smart Banksy message on this one?

Is it supposed to be like a gorilla in a zoo who is tired of being looked at so he hides with the mask? Help.

It doesn't matter what fancy stuff we hide behind we're all just really apes.
