For once there were no guest lists on the door of the 'must go to party' this weekend. That's because the Banksy party was in the virtual world of Second Life. The 24 hour party, which took place on Saturday, was to launch the online Second Life Banksy gallery know as 'Banksy's Ghetto'.
It was set up by someone called Charleymarley Nightfire (in Second Life I hasten to add) who is claiming their online Banksy collection is the biggest in the World outside Flickr, and the only place to see early works to boot. It is not known if Banksy has visited the show as yet - but word on the blogs is that the very early alien portrait could fetch up to £500,000 in the real world.
