Bonham’s in London is hosting its first ever street art auction on February 5th. Banksy, probably the most well known of the artists has 22 out of the 75 lots up for sale. Banksy’s anarchist works are expected to bring in the most profit, however there are many other noteworthy street artists being featured as well. Adam Neat, the youngest of the group, has had an estimate of £25,000 – 30,000 for his “Apprentice” piece.
