(Reuters) - A broken heart and a graffiti-covered car door will be the first two pieces from street artist Banksy’s New York series to go up for public sale next month in Miami.http://s1.reutersmedia.net/resources/r/?m=02&d=20131121&t=2&i=813987747&w=460&fh=&fw=&ll=&pl=&r=CBRE9AK1T2E00.jpg
The sale by an artist whose pieces have gone for as much as $1.87 million at Sotheby’s has drawn fire from some street-art experts who say they are public art that Banksy did not want sold.
Banksy is the unidentified British artist who in October posted a piece of art a day, including satirized cartoons and pithy fake Plato quotes, on New York streets as part of his “Better Out Than In” series.
