Band selling the painting Banksy gave them for their name
London rock band Brace Yourself! is putting their Banksy painting up for auction because “people should be able to see it”, Guardian reports. The band was formerly known as Exit Through the Gift Shop, and they were asked by Banksy more than a decade ago to choose a new name owing to copyright issues with his Oscar-nominated 2010 documentary of the same name. The band indeed changed their name, and got a Banksy in return. The painting, also named 'Brace Yourself! - features Death driving a bumper car - is on show in London before sale where it has estimate of $600,000-$800,000.
