Seems that Banksy really does have the perfect moniker, as whereever his art appears £’s or $’s are sure to follow.
Artwork made by Banksy is known to increase the price of a property.The managers of a hotel in Torquay in Devon have been left startled after reportedly receiving a visit from the world’s most famous graffiti artist, Banksy, during the night. The Grosvenor Hotel has been adorned with an 8ft high image of a small boy drawing a robot which has been created around a fan fixed to the wall of the hotel. Banksey’s work apparently drove the price of the hotel up by £150,000. There are plans being made by the business’s managers to preserve the art before the 46-room property is sold for £1.5 million.
‘It’s crazy how much interest it has generated, the phone has been ringing off the hook,’ Layman added.
– I feel a new future for graffiti on the horizon….well at least for Banksy that is.
