|All the Way to the Bank-sy: Banksy to go Up for Private Sale for 500,000|
This collectors item is the only piece of Banksy street art currently on the market.
LONDON.- Two young chancers from Clapham spend £13,000 removing a Banksy from the streets of South London and hit the jackpot after its valued at £500,000.
Bradley Ridge and Nick Loizou are lifelong friends from South London. On 9th November last year Bradley heard about a piece of Banksy street art appearing on Beddingtton Farm Road in Croydon.
Being a fan of the illusive street artist, Bradley thought he would seize the opportunity. Nine sleepless nights later, a few threats of physical abuse, £13,000 in costs and a deal with a local land owner, Bradley and Nick now own a very rare a piece of modern art.
This collectors item is the only piece of Banksy street art currently on the market. In recent years Banksy walls have fetched up to £300k and celebrities such as Brad Pitt have spent around £400k on his studio art.
Bradley and Nick have already received one offer but are determined to maximise their opportunism.
