The mysterious west country prince produces faithful replicas of Banksy's most famous screen prints.
The West Country Prince is a screen printing artist who produces Banksy replicas such as 'bomb hugger'. Each limited edition screen print is made using the exact same methods as Banksy's early works. They are hand pulled screen prints using the same paper as the original Banksy artworks.
Banksy's pest control organisation has always acted quickly on copyright abusers of Banksy's imagery and content, so the fact that WCP has been allowed to sell these replicated pieces for many years has caused speculation that he or she is and old friend of the artist, or even Banksy himself.
