Need a bargain gift for the anti-establishmentarian in your life? Look no further. Walmart.com, via a third party, is selling prints of the famed street artist Banksy's work at everyday value prices (plus some for the un-Walmart high price of $868). The Banksy line at Walmart.com also includes some mis-credited pieces by California street artist Eddie Callo. Callo has since created a piece mocking Walmart.

A massive corporation selling counterfeit reproductions of anti-consumerist artwork at a ridiculous markup? Would Banksy approve of this irony? Read more here.


Note: Walmart.com has currently listed all items in the Banksy line as "out of stock online."
