It is part of a collection of works including other “revolutionary iconoclasts” Shepard Fairey, Damien Hirst and David Hockney.

The auction is hosted by Julien’s Auction house in the US in glam Beverly Hills, Los Angeles on March 16.

The Banksy is thought to have been created in 2003, and first featured on the wall of a Parisian art studio and boutique.

Sellers say the estimate for the piece is between £150,000 to £300,000.

And the Bristol-based graffiti artist’s stencil for his iconic toxic rat artwork is priced at between £22,000 and £40,000.


Martin Nolan, executive director of Julien’s Auctions, said: “Julien’s Auctions is proud to present this outstanding collection from the art world’s major figures and visionaries who have made the world their canvas and turned street and contemporary art into a global phenomenon.

“These important pieces of the 20th and 21st century’s modern art movement have seized our collective consciousness and imagination to inspire pop culture, activism and change.”
