UK based t-shirt company 8 Ball have responded to news that the first ever confirmed pictures of graffiti artist, Banksy, have been released.

Part of the allure of Banksy is the mystery regarding his identity.

Known for his elusive nature, guerrilla artist Banksy has so far managed to avoid his identity being revealed.

The pictures, taken on a 2001 football tour of Mexico, show Banksy painting a mural for a rival team. It depicted football team, the Zapatista freedom fighters, and their struggle for freedom.

While Banksy’s face has been pixelated to protect his identity, the photos are the first confirmed images of the artist to be released after previous photos claiming to feature the artist, were denied by Banksy himself.

As a t-shirt company that stocks a wide selection of t-shirts depicting his iconic designs, 8 Ball have responded to the news with interest.

A representative of 8 Ball said: “As fans of Banksy’s work, and with 8 Ball stocking such a large selection of t-shirts depicting his work, it’s interesting to get some kind of idea about the man behind it all. However part of the allure of Banksy is the mystery regarding his identity. If too much is revealed about his appearance and personal life it risks spoiling the allure of his work.”
