One of the latest pieces of news from the world of street art has revealed that the Banksy 'Gas Mask Boy' is now out in the public for everyone to enjoy.

The Banksy 'Gas Mask Boy' is a piece from the graffiti artist that was previously unseen before in his work. The picture depicts a young boy in a gas mask drawing a small island. Stylistically, this is classic Banksy with the gray scale stencil style. The coolest part is the visor, which depicts a beautiful reflection of the sea; it's one of those little details that really pulls everything together.

The Banksy 'Gas Mask Boy' is now being auctioned at Sotheby's at a price of an estimated $97,000 – $130,000 US dollars.
