Banksy's For Sale

London auction house Bonhams is scouring Banksy's home town of Bristol for works to add to its first-ever Urban Art sale in Los Angeles on 29 October (CLICK). Let's hope this doesn't involve demolishing too many buildings. Why Los Angeles? There are some rich Hollywood stars who are collecting Banksy's. His Winnie the Pooh with a paw caught in a bear trap ... er ... man trap ... er ... Pooh trap ... is one of the works that will be up for grabs, estimated value $50,000 to $80,000. Without costing the taxpayer a penny, Banksy has done far more for British art than the overpaid Arts Council, which wastes vast sums of public money on daft ideas that make us a laughing stock in the eyes of the world.
