Report: Not Banksy's art on tiles at Riviera South Beach Hotel

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – Tiles at the newly opened Riviera South Beach Hotel weren't designed by Banksy, a British graffiti artist, his publicist told the Miami New Times.

In an email to the Miami New Times, Jo Brooks wrote, "I can confirm that the tiles you mentioned are fake and not by the artist Banksy."

A representative at Peronda, a Spanish company that sells similar looking tiles under the name "Bansky," told the newspaper the tiles were inspired by his artwork, but the company has no incorporation with him.
