Banksy's work displayed at London's Hard Rock Cafe in Picadilly

In London, England, a painting by the artist Banksy entitled 'Grim Reaper' goes on public display in the window of London's Hard Rock Cafe in Picadilly. Banksy's painting 'Grim Reaper' goes on public display at London's Hard Rock Cafe in Picadilly ahead of its upcoming auction in Beverly Hills. 

The painting was partly 'swapped' with a band formerly known as 'Exit through the gift shop', a name Banksy had, according to the artist, already had in mind for his 2010 directorial debut film, 'Exit Through the Gift Shop'. 

The band agreed to change its name in exchange for the painting and it is now called 'Brace Yourself'. The painting will be auctioned at Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills later this month, with an undisclosed percentage donated to the music industry charity MusiCares. 

The painting is expected to cost between $600,000 and $800,000.
