A Los Angeles mural by graffiti artist Banksy is up for auction. Estimated to fetch $150k to $300k.
Banksy is a pseudonym for an elusive British graffiti artist who first emerged in Bristol, England, as part of an underground group of artists. He has become known for his trademark spray-paint stencils that offer social commentary.
He intentionally hides his identity and real name, but verifies his works by featuring them on his website (www.banksy.co.uk).
