Inescapable and mysterious, Banksy is the current star of street art. His happenings hit the headlines, the prices of his work can reach in excess one million pounds, and some people go so far as to steal spray painted pieces of wall in order to resell them.
A solid value, a safe bet.

"I've done a few things to pay the bills, and I did the Blur album. It was a good record and [the commission was] quite a lot of money. I think that's a really important distinction to make. If it's something you actually believe in, doing something commercial doesn't turn it to shit just because it's commercial. Otherwise you've got to be a socialist rejecting capitalism altogether, because the idea that you can marry a quality product with a quality visual and be a part of that even though it's capitalistic is sometimes a contradiction you can't live with. But sometimes it's pretty symbiotic, like the Blur situation." Banksy
Fake ten pound note created by Banksy.
Mostly known for his stencil and installation work, Banksy turned his attention to his native London's bills.
In 2004, the artist printed one million pounds worth of his Di Faced Tenner. The play on the term "defaced" (di-faced) comes from the fact that Banksy substituted the Queen's face with that of Princess Diana.
The altered bill, which also features the words "Banksy of England" were dropped into a crowd at the 2004 Notting Hill Carnival and later that year, The Reading Festival.
3 x 5.66 in. (7,6 x 14,4 cm). Magnetic Frame included.
