Banksy's art flies off the wall

The self styled guerrilla artist Banksy hit somewhat of a jackpot last night. Eleven of his works sold for more than £560,000, which apparently is double what auctioneers at Bonhams in Knightsbridge were expecting.

It's the latest bit of plumage in the man's fast growing feathery cap - Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are just two a list celebs who've recently snapped up works too. Looks like they have an eye for an art investment after this latest coup.

Here's a selection of some of his street works.
