Banksy Greetings Card – Gorilla in a Pink Mask

by Richard Jones

The Gorilla was put up on the wall of a former social club on Fishponds Road in 2008, but the new owner of the building had the wall whitewashed without realising the Gorilla's importance.

Product Description


One of Bristol's many lost Banksy's, the Gorilla on Fishponds Road appeared in 2007 and marked the last Banksy piece in the city until he returned in 2009 for the Banksy vs Bristol Museum show. Although it was occasionally tagged, the Gorilla remained in pretty good nick until 2011 when the new owner of the building Saeed Ahmed, who had never heard of Banksy, had the wall whitewashed. Attempts to restore the Gorilla have resulted in a ghostly shadow of the image peering through the whitewash.
