Earlier this week, Banksy‘s Game Changer painting set a new auction world record. The piece, which honors U.K. healthcare workers, also set a new personal record for the artist, selling for $23.1 million USD at Christie’s in London.
There have been so many supposed unmaskings of Banksy, that we barely raise an eyebrow every time an alleged new revelation makes headlines.
A Scottish journalist believes he has determined the identity of elusive graffiti god Banksy. In a now-viral post to Transmission Glasgow, Craig Williams points his finger squarely at Robert “3D” Del Naja of the Bristol-based “trip hop” group Massive Attack.
Two more Banksy murals are headed to auction and their combined sales are estimated to reach over $1 million, Reuters reports.
One mural featuring a boy with a paintbrush standing next to the words, “I remember when all this was trees,” was painted during Banksy’s time in Detroit. The other, entitled Donkey Documents, comes from the street artist’s visit to Isreal in 2007.
