Banksy Art Rolls into Auction

Posted in Wheels-Near-U-UK by Wheels Near U Team on the June 20th, 2008

Last week the local Norfolk press reported on a piece of art unlike no other seen before. Parked up in a meadow and used for living in this trailer had lived a far from conventional last few years.  Originally brought for £1000 by Nathan Wellard and Maeve Neal this artic box was until recently used as a family home, however it is now in the process of being auctioned off as a piece of world famous Banksy Graffiti artwork.

The illusive Banksy has managed to keep his identity largely unknown to the masses, leaving his contriversial artworks adorned in difficult to believe places, mostly walls, worldwide. Famed as an underground artist, Banksy originally asked Nathan and Maeve for permission to use their arctic trailer as a canvas back in the 1990’s where he painted the huge murial down the sides at the Glastonbury festival, since then whenever Nathan and Maeve have seen Banksy he has added, tweaked and furthered the graffiti, a sign of an ever concious artist.

Now encased in plastic, headed for an auction the artwork is set to be seen by thousands more eyes, all depending on who snaps it up on the 28th of June we may be seeing these fantastic works in a gallery soon. We can’t think of anything better than talented artists using transport as a canvas and wish Nathan and Maeve the best of luck with their sale!
