Banksy doesnt get any money for his work. most is taken by people off the walls (some may say stolen) and then sold by them at auction. he doesnt recieve a penny!

These pieces sold has nothing to do with Banksy's wallet, this is one person who stole a Banksy, sold it to a gallery (Private) to another gallery (Private). He has never personally put anything in to an auction house, he has given paintings to charities so that they may benefit in the capitalization of the art industry. What wealthy artist does significant work against capitalism?... Who ever put this together, thanks this is a good list but please remove the intro paragraph. You are wrong.
