Robbie Williams is auctioning off three of Banksy’s works.
The 'Let Me Entertain You' singer, 47, is putting the pictures under the hammer at Sotheby’s in March, and the collection is expected to fetch millions of pounds.
He said he thinks the pieces - Girl With Balloon, Kissing Coppers and Vandalised Oils (Choppers) – are some of the anonymous street artist’s “best paintings”.
Girl With Balloon, one of Banksy’s most iconic pieces, has a list price of two to three million, while Kissing Coppers, which shows two policemen kissing, could fetch a whopping 2,500,000 to 3,500,000.
Vandalised Oil (Choppers) is also listed on the Sotheby’s site at 2,500,000 to 3,500,000.
Dad-of-four Williams 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 was first seen under Waterloo Bridge in London 20 years ago, while Williams’ version is from 2006. The image was in the headlines in 2018 when a version of it self-destructed after it had just been sold for over a million.
The original Kissing Coppers first popped up outside a pub in Brighton in 2004 but was taken down after it was vandalised.
Vandalised Oils (Choppers) shows a peaceful countryside with military helicopters flying above it.
The pieces will be up for sale at Sotheby’s in London on March 2.
