Here are all the items you can buy from Banksy's online shop

Banksy's new online shop, Gross Domestic Product, is now open.

The store follows an IRL launch in Croydon earlier this month, where the illusive artist installed a pop-up shop beneath a gym on a dismal British street.

The Bristol artist is going ham on merch after he claimed a greetings card company was trying to rip him off.

Gross Domestic Product – a relatively clever riff on art merch and Brexit's impact on the UK economy – caused a stir with its famous stab-proof vest (as worn by Stormzy at Glastonbury), Tony The Tiger rug and Massive Attack-esque cushions plopped in an unassuming store front in South London.

Now these items are online and ready to be purchased by fans and thirsty collectors.

The headline-grabbing items are indeed listed, with the vest retailing for £850 and a disco ball made out of a police riot helmet going for £500. Not bad considering the recent action at Southeby's.

But it appears Banksy and his crew have come up with a mechanism to thwart the dodgy resellers out there: potential buyers must enter a verification process, which includes answering the question, does art matter?

Elsewhere, the more modest Banksy stan can pick up a modified spray can for a tenner and T-shirts for £35.

There's also cushions, pop art sculptures, mugs, bootleg paintings and defaced TVs, with standard merch made in unlimited quantities and more special items, like a clutch bag made out of a brick, in an edition of one.

A welcome mat with lettering stitched from fake lifejackets sold to refugees and found washed up on beaches in the Med is retailing for £500, with proceeds going to Love Welcomes, a charity working with women in detainment camps in Greece.

The Gross Domestic Product site also contains a link to Bbay, a platform for buying and selling second-hand Banksy art, which will launch soon.
