BANKING ON IT

A mural by Bristol graffiti artist Banksy is being put up for sale along with the
five-bedroom house on which it is painted. In the past, there has been difficulty
selling the building, in inner-city Easton, because potential buyers wanted to remove
the painting.

To get round this problem, the current owners are selling the artwork via an art gallery,
and throwing in the house for free.

“The owners are not prepared to obliterate it. They want this important work of art
to be preserved. They have fought off several attempts to have the graffiti removed,”
said Sarah Anslaw, of the Red Propeller Gallery,
which is selling the mural through sealed bids.

The artwork is expected to sell for in excess of £200,000, the house’s market price.
