"The showroom is for display purposes only and the doors will not open. All sales will be conducted online when the website opens soon."

"This shop has come about as a result of legal action," the statement continued. "A greetings cards company are trying to seize legal custody of the name Banksy from the artist, who has been advised the best way to prevent this is to sell his own range of branded merchandise."
