Last Two Hours Of Banksy Prints, Lithos and Items At Auction

Our friends at Heritage Auctions has put together a smashing selection of authenticated Banksy prints and lithographs including a Welcome mat. I remember the man now known as Banksy when he used to see self-published comic books at the old UKCAC comic conventions, and never pieced him together as the person responsible for excellent graffiti in and around Soho when I was working as an advertising copywriter in the nineties and noughties. And no I don't have his old comics anymore, or I could pay off the mortgage. Here's a look at the Heritage Online Catalog: 2021 February 10 In Focus: Banksy Special Online Auction #11161.
