That Alleged Banksy Christmas Card Is Very, Very Old!

12.10.12 Marina Galperina

Yo, internet people: “This year’s” supposed “Banksy Christmas card” is not this year’s Banksy Christmas card, so stop passing it around and calling it this year’s Banksy Christmas card.

A TinEye search will place that exact image as far back into virtual time as 2006, but then… but, considering the theme, we thought it might have been inspired by Banksy’s actual trip to Palestine and the subsequent Santa’s Ghetto exhibit in London and BINGO! It’s a painting from 2005. In internet time, that’s practically B.C.

Nice piece, though.
