It’s time for some more news on Banksy. It’s being reported that “Flower Girl” has sold for $209,000 at auction in the largest auction of the artists work in the US.
The owner of the petrol station had the wall removed entirely, obviously spotting an opportunity to make some money when he found one of Banksy’s pieces on the side. It’s also reported that none of the money will go to the artist in this case.
Alongside this one, Julien’s Auctions also sold “Black Bobby” for $37500, “TV Girl” for $137000, assorted installation panels for $23,750, and “Umbrella Rat” for $50,000. That’s a lot of US dollars right there!
