Who Owns Street Art?
When Banksy tags a work of art on a slab of concrete or a street corner, he means for it to stay there. That’s not always the case, though.
Now, as a Banksy sells for US$1.1 million, we wonder: Who actually owns Street Art?
Happy National Donut Day, everyone!

Pictured: Banksy’s Because I’m Worthless
Street artist Banksy takes one of the iconic scenes of American cinema and deflates it with his characteristic irreverence.
Based on Andy Warhol’s iconic Marilyn series, this signed screenprint by notorious Street artist Banksy is a portrait of the famous supermodel enfant terrible Kate Moss.

Pictured is Banksy’s humorous take on Andy Warhol’s famous soup can imagery. The Street artist substitutes Warhol’s iconic Campbell’s Soup Can for a cheap tin of Tesco’s extra value tomato soup!
Banksy’s Pooh Bear
Banksy’s black and white stencil of AA Milne’s cuddly creation, Winnie the Pooh, will go on sale at Bonham’s urban art sale in Los Angeles on October 29, 2012, and is estimated to sell for between US$50,000 and US$80,000!
The estimate may sound high, but is still well below the £1.26 million record currently held for an original Pooh Bear illustration by EH Shepard!

A Portrait Of A Queen
In order to make these portraits, Chris Levine had to take over 10,000 images and 3D data-sets of Her Majesty during two sittings at Buckingham Palace!
The works show The Queen wearing the Diamond Diadem, created for George IV and worn by Her Majesty for the procession to her Coronation in 1953.
Banksy’s Diamond Jubilee Piece?
Although unconfirmed, this may be a brand new work from Banksy.
Says UK Street Art site Hookedblog, “with the Queen’s upcoming Diamond Jubilee, the location of this piece and the style and cut of the stencil it is highly likely that it’s the work of Banksy.”
