Ocean Rooms sells Banksy picture for £200,000


The subject says it all really. Back in 2002 the Ocean Rooms comissioned a piece of art from Banksy to hang behind their bar.
"The image, called 'Laugh now', depicts a row of chimps wearing placards emblazoned, 'Laugh now, but one day we'll be in charge.' It was one of six Banksy pictures which once decorated the various rooms on both floors of the club but have since been removed.

Bonhams staff believe it could rival the record £288,000 achieved at the house last year."
