Who Robs A Banksy

12:49 PM GMT+1 on April 30, 2023

    Who Robs A Banksy? – In 2004, a 10 foot bronze sculpture by the world famous street artist Banksy was stolen on the streets of London. It was an art heist in broad daylight. Passers-by assumed that the artwork being lifted into a truck were people in white boiler suits employed by the local council, or by people connected to the artist himself. But it wasn’t. Weirder still, the sculpture ended up in someone’s back garden.

    “The fact that someone would kidnap a Banksy statue is pretty absurd already,” says the host and journalist Jake Warren. “But the story of why it happened and the following two decade debacle, is even wilder.”

    The podcast also tries to get a comment from Banksy on all of this, which as you can imagine, isn’t really that easy.
