Bank landscapes of Banksy raise 2.4 million euros

Three paintings by British street art artist Banksy in 2017 about the European refugee crisis have been sold for £ 2.2 million at auction. That money is donated to a hospital in Bethlehem.

The artwork donated by Banksy Mediterranean sea view was auctioned at Sotheby’s in London on Tuesday. There they expected that it would yield about 1.2 million British pounds, but it was only knocked at almost twice as much: 2.2 million British pounds, or more than 2.4 million euros.

The work, consisting of three paintings, is a reference to the European refugee crisis in which migrants try to cross the Mediterranean in rickety boats. Banksy reworked three existing oil paintings of maritime landscapes and added abandoned life jackets.

He painted them for The Walled Off Hotel, in occupied Palestinian territory. The proceeds from the auction will go to the Bethlehem Arab Society for Rehabilitation, where they will purchase equipment for the rehabilitation of children.
