This $305,000 Banksy Painting Comes With an Entire English Cottage

New, 1 comment

While some of Banksy's works have sold for over a million dollars, his "Spy Booth" in Cheltenham, England is asking only $305,000, and it comes with the entire three-bedroom cottage on which it's painted. One explanation for the low price is that neither the house nor the Bansky are in very good shape—the painting, which was painted after the Edward Snowden leak and depicts three government agent-types surrounding an actual phone booth with listening devices, was vandalized shortly after it was painted and has since been restored and surrounded with metal railings.
