Even those who are not overly familiar with art might recognise the name Banksy, along with his signature style of street art. But after conquering the material world, Banksy is set to take on the metaverse with a new NFT series to debut on MakersPlace.
This NFT series has been commissioned by Austin Wilde, who received the rights to the works from Banksy himself.
Banksy in the Metaverse
This new collection will see Banksy’s work appear on original album covers, posters, and 12″ record sleeves. A new original image was created by Banksy for this collection, which is of an artillery sporting a pair of Adidas sneakers.
The rest will be previous Banksy pieces that have been repurposed for the collection, which drops on October 4, 2022.
More Banksy for your buck.
“The BADMEANiNGOOD Crew – with original artwork by Banksy” by Austin Wilde drops October 4.

“I’m honored to introduce these unique vinyl, CD and poster artworks to a whole new audience and bring them to life through the digital world. MakersPlace has been such an incredible partner and really understands how to help translate our passions for art and entertainment,” Wilde said about the new collection.
The pieces will have a reserve of between 1 ETH to 2 ETH and 10% of the proceeds will go to #MOASMissionUkraine, an organization that supports those affected by the ongoing conflict.
