Los Angeles mural by graffiti artist Banksy up for auction
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - A mural by British graffiti artist Banksy that was painted on a Los Angeles gas station wall will be auctioned off in December and is expected to fetch upwards of US$150,000 (S$190,000), Julien's Auctions said on Monday.
The mural, entitled Flower Girl, was painted on the brick wall of a gas station in 2008.
Measuring 2.7m by 2.4m, the mural shows the silhouette of a girl looking up at a closed-circuit television camera sprouting from a vine.
It is estimated to fetch between US$150,000 and US$300,000 as Banksy has become a coveted contemporary artist.
