let me say again...the trailer on TV is an EDIT, designed to hook your interest.
The producers would never ever give the corresponding item and value away on a trailer, ever.
For a start the advertisers would go nuts (no one need to watch the episode if they give away the 'reveal'), and secondly...well let just say it wouldn't happen full stop. It is a splice of items / bids from across the whole series. The £240k item probably hasn't even been shown yet - that is how TV works!
the only thing we know with confidence is that the banksy walls DOES NOT sell for £240k. not saying it isn't more, less or not at all. but not £240k!

There is excellent prov, in the sense that the piece is featured on banksy's website - which, if you read between the lines IS Pest Control certification for street pieces. On top, s they have full video evidence from being in place to fully removed that the item they are selling is the one on the site and not a copy. That is, to me, as strong prov as any buyer/collector would need.
I think people forget that a PC cert is never going to happen for a street piece as it would immediately make Pest Control liable for criminal damage proceedings by admitting liability.
It'd be a shame if it did have significant value. Every street piece would be associated with a price tag making it a target for those looking to pay off their mortgages
I think the boat sailed on that one about 6 years ago...about the time when the bristol house was sold as a banksy with a house attached.
Banksy and his people have deliberately and brilliantly enacted a 10 year strategy to make his artwork hugely valuable. it now is, so there's no doubt that a 1-off street piece with as strong a prov as is possible to have is worth big money. The interesting thing will be to see if any of these dealers are prepared to stump up cold hard cash.
oh...and why IKEA didn't buy if off them and install it in the Croydon complex themselves (would have been a PR master-stroke to rival Banksy's), I will never know....
guest8888: I also cannot post in the 'Art for Sale' section. Do we now have to have over 50 posts?

Payazo: Why can't I find a Help Button or Contact button anywhere on this site to communicate to someone about my seemingly being banned from posting with no plausible reasons?
