Banksy

Another Banksy in San Francisco.

 

I guess he did this along with 7-8 others when he came to promoto his movie - "Exit through the Gift Shop".

 

Some pieces got painted over and some have been saved.

 

This one has plexi-glass bolted over the top of the painting (graffiti) to protect it.

 

Not a bad idea considering his work has sold for a much as £288,000 in 2007 (at the time US$576,000).

 

If I were the building owner I would remove the entire wall, rebuild the wall and sell the piece.

Remove wall = $ 88,998.10
New wall = $ 256,016.00
Transporting wall to auctioneer = $ 157,120.89
Auctioneer fees = $ 73,865.01

No gain, lot of pain.

I like the graffiti again and the idea with the perspex.
John Eagle: ha ha, yes I guess so. Maybe i should get me MasterCard out and charge it.
