The GILT Home division of the online shopping hub is now featuring the work of British street artist Banksy. Banksy has been idolized in the art community for his bold displays within public arenas, often rife with political and social criticism.

The site of Banksy's illustrations makes them difficult to purchase. Even the most avid of art collectors have had difficulty as far as investment goes given his use of buildings, bridges and sidewalks. GILT Home's mass production of over 70 Banksy prints gets around this issue, bringing the best of his previously unobtainable renderings to the public in the form of small canvases.

GILT's artistic direction suggests a new turn for the fashion site. Although known for its classic looks and deals, it is shaping up to be a cultured company with several key interests. Stats for Mass Produced Street Art Trending: Older & Mild
