will the real BANSKY please stand up
Anonymous street artist Banksy has declared that if any work of his isn’t authenticated by Pest Control, a committee formed for that very purpose, then it’s not worth the wall it’s painted on. An “art world source” told the First Post: “The works are made for specific sites, and taking them is tantamount to theft. That is why Banksy has approved this authentication system. He certainly doesn’t want the people who’ve removed them making money out of it.” Three unauthenticated works supposedly by Banksy that went under the hammer at Bloomsbury Auctions in London last week ended up unsold, with one withdrawn before the bidding had even started.
