    Exit Through the Gift Shop
    When British stencil artist Banksy traveled to Los Angeles to work, he came across obscure French filmmaker Thierry Guetta and his badly organized collection of videotapes involving the activities of graffiti artists. Inspired, Banksy assembled them with new footage to create this talked-about documentary, and the result is a mind-boggling and odd film (so strange as to be thought a hoax by some) about outsider artists and the definition of art itself.

Seventeen Works By Banksy to Sell in Urban Art Sale At Bonhams

Bonhams auction house employees pose for photographers with a work by British artist known as Banksy, entitled 'Kate Moss', during a press preview in London, Friday, March, 23, 2012. The Andy Warhol inspired 'Kate Moss' is expected to sell for between GBP 30,000 to 50,000 (US$ 48,000 to 79,000). AP Photo/Alastair Grant.Banksy is a pseudonym used by a British underground street artist, filmmaker and political activist. He uses a stenciling technique to produce works that are satirical and embody a dark humour.


LONDON.- Seventeen art works by the celebrated graffiti artist, Banksy, will be available to photograph at Bonhams, New Bond Street, ahead of the Urban Art Sale, which takes place on 29 March 2012. One of the highlights is a screen print of British supermodel Kate Moss, 2005, inspired by Andy Warhol’s iconic Marilyn Monroe series, which has been estimated at £30,000 – 50,000. It will be on display alongside Warhol’s screenprint of a Dollar Sign (estimate £20,000 – 30,000), which is part of the Contemporary Two: Modern Design sale, also on 29 March 2012.


For a fascinating look at Banksy and his work, I highly recommend taking a look at his 2010 documentary, Exit Through the Gift Shop.
