The artist about "Cop a Load":
The painting that began it all and caused the controversy at the same time. Everything started in 2009, when I began doing street art, I started with stencils, so when I used these, I realized that it ended up being very similar to the Banksy style, so everyone was comparing saying, “Oh it looks like a Banksy”, so then I decided to change to my ribbon style. But when I started, at the beginning I began doing this baby sitting in a police cap, like a very cheeky baby sitting on this police cap. In the beginning I did not sign it, I was too cheeky, and if the police caught me, I could be arrested. So I did not sign it. People after that thought it was a Banksy one. Now the world knows it is #NotaBanksy, it’s an Osch. Learn more at
