Banksy graffiti sold with wall

Banksy painting with part of a wall sold in Britain

The image on the building in the British county of Suffolk brought the owners from 1.5 to 2 million pounds.

The owners of a building in the English city of Lowestoft sold the work of street artist Banksy, along with the wall of the building on which it was painted. This caused outrage among local residents, Metro reported.

The graffiti on the wall of the old electrical appliance store owned by Gary and Nadine Schwartz appeared in August last year.

An anonymous artist depicted a girl with a crowbar next to a sand castle.

According to the tabloid, the couple cut out the graffiti wall last November and sold it to a private buyer for an estimated £1.5 million to £2 million.

Local residents considered the actions of the couple “selfish”.

“It is a pity that someone decided to benefit from what was not done for him. I am sure that Banksy did not paint this work in the hope that someone will profit from it,” said Deputy Mayor Naseema Begum.

Banksy is an anonymous artist best known for creating graffiti, photographs and short films on sensitive social issues.
