Exit Through The Gift Shop

While we're waiting for some new work to pop up somewhere I thought advise all you guys that haven't seen it to go grab Banksy's documentary, Exit Through The Gift Shop. It features loads of street artists and in particular follows the story of Mr Brainwash. It's a great film, here's the first 5 minutes:

Banksy Brighton Wall To Be Flown To USA

A piece of wall bearing one of Banksy’s most iconic works has been flown to America to be sold.
Experts predict the kissing policeman, painted on the wall of the Prince Albert pub in Trafalgar Street, Brighton in 2004, could reach in excess of £1 million.
The image became a tourist attraction in Brighton (which has a large gay community)  and one of the most famous ‘street Banksys’ in the country.
But owner of the Albert, Chris Steward, says it is time for the policemen to leave Brighton and fly to New York where a private dealer has shown an interest in auctioning them off.
