Former Take That singer Robbie Williams hopes to sell his Banksy artwork for £10 million

Singer Robbie Williams is to auction three works by Banksy.

The entertainer is expected to make more than £10 million from the sale.

The works are Girl With Balloon, Kissing Coppers and Vandalised Oils (Choppers).

They will be sold at Sotheby’s in London on March 2nd.


Williams – the former Take That star – said the paintings were some of Banksy’ best work.

He said:

“I remember seeing Girl With Balloon, Vandalised Oils (Choppers) and Kissing Coppers for the first time.

“I believe they are some of his best paintings and I love how closely linked they are to the street pieces.

As a collector of Banksy’s work, you become part of a broader cultural movement.”

Girl With Balloon will have a starting price of £2m.

Kissing Coppers is estimated at £2.5m to £3.5m.

It will be the first Kissing Coppers painting on canvas to be auctioned.

The third painting, Vandalised Oils (Choppers), features military helicopters disrupting a calm rural landscape and is part of a series of graffitied oil paintings.

It too is valued at £2.5m to £3.5m.

Hugo Cobb of Sotheby’s said:

“These works unite the cultural legacies of two of Britain’s biggest stars: Robbie Williams and Banksy.”

The auctioneer added the paintings are “acerbic, iconic, irreverent and unique – like their creator and owner.”
