Photos: Art by Banksy

Banksy, the anonymous graffiti artist, has left his mark on streets and buildings all over the world. Sometimes playful, sometimes provocative, his artwork consistently causes a sensation. A selection of his work is scheduled to go on auction at Julien's Auctions in Beverley Hills in June, the auctioneer announced Friday. Some of the work is expected to go for up to $250,000, though Banksy has come out against the sale of his work previously. A spokesperson for the auction house said the five pieces up for sale are being offered by private collectors of Banksy's art, all of whom are choosing to remain anonymous.
