In 2004, the famously anonymous British artist Banksy visited Jamaica, and met Peter Dean Rickards, photographer, writer, provocateur and producer of The Afflicted Yard and First Magazine. Rickards had never heard of Banksy; he described him as a “a rude little guy with rat teeth who apparently felt very superior because he was famous for stencilling bunnies and rats back in London.” They fell out. Four years later, Rickards had his revenge: he got a dog to defecate on a piece of street art Banksy had left behind in Jamaica, and then tore it down and put it up for sale on eBay – for free.
