Art Fan George Michael Wants Banksy Mural

by | 07 April 2008

GEORGE MICHAEL wants famed graffiti artist BANKSY to create a mural on a wall in his London home.

However, this could prove difficult as BANKSY is well known for liking to preserve his anonymity.

The Mirror reports that the CARELESS WHISPER singer is willing to pay up to £2 million for an original piece of work.

"George is a huge fan of Banksy's work and asked his representative if he would reveal himself to the singer. He also asked if Banksy would paint one wall in his house for £2 million," a source told the news provider.

However, Banksy, whose portfolio of work includes Morons, a screenprint that pokes fun at the art establishment, and Bomb Hugger, of a girl hugging a missile, has stated that he would only consider undertaking the job if George leaves the premises for the duration.

Meanwhile, it was recently reported that George plans to retreat from the public eye when his current US tour is over.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly the singer also revealed that he may write a "no-holds-barred" autobiography.
