Banksy Does It Again

Banksy - Embracing CoupleToday, Banksy broke another record by hitting 10 times the estimated value of his Embracing Couple - a spray paint on steel study for the cover of Blur’s Think Tank album - when it fetched £62,400 at a Bonhams Vision 21 auction. (Who? Blur. Never heard of 'em.) The estimate was set months ago, before Banksy took his hols in Hollywood and started painting elephants to look like pub wallpaper. Angelina Jolie lashing out big bucks at the jumbo sale also helped raise our lad's stock. Bonhams sold another of Banksy's works - Young Child With Bird - for £31,200. Not a bad day's work. Jolie good show, Angelina. You made a wiser investment than did Kate Moss with her stuffed bluetit.
