Video: An Old Volvo Truck Painted By Banksy To Start Up With A Hammer
Bonhams auctioned a 1988 Volvo FL6 truck painted by renowned street artist Banksy. For the car they plan to bail out from 1.3 to 2 million dollars.
The truck weighs 17 tonnes and is Banksy's heaviest and largest work, according to Bonhams. The machine is 10 meters long, almost 3.7 meters high and 2.4 meters wide. And while the whole car is covered with drawings.
- Banksy painted a van for the Turbozone International Circus 19 years ago. On one side there is a squad of flying monkeys and a punk smashing a TV with a hammer, on the other - policemen running away from a bull with a gun on their back.
- The van has Banksy's signature Certificate of Authenticity. The document is called Pest Control.
- In 2016, a car painted by Banksy was put up for auction. It was a SWAT van that went for $ 300,000.
- Last year, Banksy's painting "Girl with a Ball" was sold at auction. The maximum bid reached $ 1.4 million, but once the auction was over, the painting self-destructed through a framed shredder.
