$60 Banksy Central Park Stencils Estimated to Sell for $200,000

Last fall, Banksy took to New York for his “Better Out Than In” residency. One of his projects in the series saw Banksy hire a man to sell his art pieces in Central Park. Although the canvases were on sale for $60 USD a piece, only a few were sold with visitors clueless that the art belonged to the acclaimed street artist. Now, two of the stenciled pieces, Winnie the Pooh and Kids on Guns (seen above) are heading up for auction at British auctioneers Bonhams. Sizing out to 45.5 x 45.5 cm each, the auction house estimates the artworks to be worth $51,000 to $85,000 USD and $85,000 and $120,000 USD respectively. The auction will take place on July 2 in London.
