Why? Do we need a why when talking about Banksy? Nah!
A Banksy painting depicting politicians in the House of Commons as chimpanzees is to appear at auction this month, where it is expected to fetch a record sum for the artist.
The painting, entitled Devolved Parliament, is on public display in London for the first time at Sotheby’s until the October 3, with an estimated hammer price of between £1.5-2 million.
Despite its seemingly timely nature, Devolved Parliament was painted in 2009, originally created for an exhibition in Bristol. It stands at 13 ft across, making it the anonymous artist’s largest known canvas.
