Melborne paints of Bansky; paints over a ton of money
Melbourne city officials ordered a clean up a well-known graffiti area. Unfortunately, the cleanup crew painted over 2003 Banksy pieces. So why are they so "red-faced"?
"in Britain, Banksy's work has been defaced by vandals and ordered painted over by some local councils who do not want to encourage graffiti artists. However, his works have sold for more than $1 million at auction."
