A mural, painted by Banksy, in Portobello Road, London, earned the property owner big bucks on Monday, Jan. 15, 2008. An online bidder has paid $410,830 for the wall on the online auction web site e-Bay. Prior to putting the work up for auction, the seller protected the piece with a sheet of plastic.

"I am selling the wall because I can't really justify owning a piece of art worth as much as it is," said Luti Fagbenle, the owner of the property on which the graffiti is sprayed

Just because banksy's original point might be lost to some of us that doesn't make him overrated. banksy is awesome.. the work he does is amazing..mind blowing even. i absolutley love his work..and appreciate it.

i don't think overrated is the best word to describe him..maybe misunderstood..hmm maybe not that either..maybe just really good at what he does

I don't listen to the haters. Good for Banksy. Dude is an original, and every kid into street art has been biting him ever since he's blown up. I miss graffiti so much.




Sail should be up and going again in no time.

I say good luck to him anyway, im sure hes amused that people spend so much on his work, even going to the point of tearing down walls that hes stenciled on. he even pokes fun at them in his sketches. I think there are better street artists out there though but 'Meh', it's not his fault that everybody wants a piece of Banksy, hes just doing what he does.

I still wanna know who the anonymous e-bay winner was though and how there gonna get this wall lol.
