Sold for £73,250 inclusive of Buyer's Premium
It's not even that great in person Imo! Will never spend that much money on something that can deteriorate do fast (that is cardboard)
Total sale 740,676 sterling/ $1,177,675. Total Banksy in the sale 405,425/ $644,626 or 55% of the gross.
Curious to wonder how many of us followed this sale and in total it brings in less than a small piece of paper that jean michel scribbled on for 20 seconds with oil stick just 30 years ago. I have a tough time comprehending that to be honest.
so from Lee's comment .. which is it? 'urban art is totally undervalued and one Banksy original in 30 years will sell for $644,000 .. or is it to say that one basquiat original work at $640,000 is totally over valued... i struggle with both sides of that equation. you could also throw in Haring and Warhol into that comparison. One nice large Haring canvas could easily go for over 600,000 USD.. a warhol as well. but 30 years ago they were available for the taking at less than the current Banksy prices..
Finsbury: champions league your having. A laugh
