Kissing Cops Sold
Here's Banksy's mural Kissing Coppers (2004) on display at Fine Art Auctions Miami, Florida, USA, before going under the hammer to an anonymous buyer for £345,000 ($575,000). It was spray-painted on the side of the Prince Albert pub in Trafalgar Street, Brighton, in 2004. It's another example of a Banksy being cut from a wall to reap a huge profit in the American market (CLICK).
