Monkey business at Bansky's Bethlehem hotel masks coronavirus fears
Thursday, 5 March 2020 British artist Banksy's hotel in Bethlehem brought a touch of humor to the West Bank town by strapping a surgical mask to the model monkey bellhop at its entrance as coronavirus fears grip residents and tourists.
Three Banksy paintings have been sold at auction for $2.9 million. The lot consisted of 3 paintings titled "Mediterranean Sea View 2017". The paintings fetched far more than the expected price of $1 million to $1.5 million. They gad been previously displayed in the lobby of the Walled Off Hotel, which the artist opened in Bethlehem in 2017. The proceeds from the auction are earmarked to support a Palestinian hospital.
Banksy has sprayed the inside of a London Underground tube carriage with messages about the spread of coronavirus.The street artist uploaded a 59-second video, captioned “If you don’t mask – you don’t get” to his Instagram and YouTube pages on Tuesday afternoon.
