Even if you don’t want to bid, you can get a glimpse into where street art is now at the third biannual Street Art Auction. The event will include several Banksy “Rat” pieces — dating from “Existencilism,” his first L.A. exhibition in 2002, held at the 33? Gallery on Pico. Also on the block: works by guerrilla artists Alec Monopoly, Shark Toof, mysterious London street artist Bambi, Rene Gagnon, Retna, Thanks One, Louis Carreon (BEARHEADs) and many others. The Banksy pieces should fetch big bucks, so bid early and often.
