I thought I had come upon an authentic Banksy piece only to find out that the original version of this was sold to an anonymous Miami buyer for $575,000. This is “an exact replica.” It’s on the side of the Prince Albert Pub in Brighton.
Unbelievable. Banksy bought this thrift shop painting for $50 two months ago. He painted in a Nazi and gave it back to the shop yesterday. The bidding will likely go up to a quarter to a half a million dollars and all proceeds will go to Housing Works Thrift Shop – a place that supports the fight against aids and homelessness. Incredible, Charitable. BANKSY.
