Banksy's The Walled Off Hotel just announced the opening of a gift shop as part of its new Autumn schedule. From 7th of September, the visitors staying at the hotel will have the chance to purchase the usual mugs, tote bag and T-shirts, alongside selection of souvenirs designed by the artist himself.
"The gift shop is situated towards the back of the hotel and sells items created exclusively for the Walled Off by Banksy. It should not be confused with the ‘Banksy Shop’ next door—which has nothing to do with Banksy at all. ” says the hotel’s website and adds that all profits from sales go towards sustaining the hotel and social projects.
Along with the shop, the hotel management is now taking bookings for winter season and has announced a "Vandals Retreat" program, which enables visitors to spend a weekend with a famous graffiti artist. This program will include the graffiti workshop at the wall itself and a dinner with the artist. Melburne-born Lush is announced as the inaugural host for the retreat that will take place October 20—22, 2017. —Sasha Bogojev
