250_banksyvid6.jpeg.jpgThis is pretty interesting. UK artist Mister Aitch illustrated this portrait styled image of Banksy (right) that was obviously recreated from one of the many shots taken by photographer Peter Dean Rickards while the street painting artist was in Jamaica back in 2004. Out of all the photos circulating on the net, the only ones that can be positively verified are the images taken by Rickards. All the rights to those photos were sold to Meena Khera PR for the equivalent of almost $20K but somehow Mister Aitch got his hands on at least one of them and he whipped up this work of art that depicts a side profile of the stenciling prankster as the Queen on a stamp. Still not convinced, click below for the side by side comparison.
