Speaking of street art making good, Banksy is getting a lot more marketable these days…thanks to the locus of chaotic energy that is Kate Moss.

Back in 2006, the British graffiter pasted Ms. Moss’s face over a famous Warhol print of Marilyn Monroe, making a tidy 96,000 UKP for a set of six prints. With that kind of payoff, it’s hard to resist a flip or two, so the owners are putting them back on the block, expecting up to 150,000 in return.

Even given the economy, we think it’s a safe bet. Kate’s look of vague disgust has never been more appropriate.
