Banksy Mural Sells for More Than $1 Million

Disputed Banksy Mural Sells for More Than $1.1 Million - Bloomberg: "“Slave Labour,” satirizing Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee, was being shown among a group of about 40 works by Banksy, Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst and Mario Testino. Most of the pieces were lower-value prints, though a signed 2001 Testino photograph of Kate Moss, from an edition of three, was priced at 125,000 pounds. Bristol-born Banksy is the world’s most famous and expensive urban artist. A canvas by him sold for a record $1.9 million at auction in February 2008. In that same year, he introduced an authentication service, Pest Control, intended to regulate the market for his paintings and street murals."
