No, Banksy hasn't been arrested...

But he has had some of his work recreated in LEGO.

If you believe everything you read on the internet you'll currently be bemoaning the arrest of infamous street artist Banksy, who was apparently picked up by London Metropolitan Police yesterday and after hours of questioning, had his identity revealed as one Paul Horner - a 35-year-old from Liverpool, UK.

Alternatively, if you weren't born yesterday and you didn't buy into the rumours, which were started by satirical news website National Report and subsequently picked up by a few genuine news outlets, then you'll of course know that the story was nothing more than a hoax. But the whole thing caused quite a stir, demonstrating the huge public and industry affection that is held for the unknown graffiti artist.

This admiration was recently demonstrated with the most sincere form of flattery, imitation, by photographer Jeff Friesen, who recreated some of Banksy's most famous artworks in LEGO! Here are some of the best:
