Trailer home turned Banksy canvas up for auctionPainted by one of the world's most famous street artists – installed first at a mud-soaked music festival and then beneath an oak tree – the trailer was home first to an itinerant British couple and then their growing family.In 1998, the truck owner knew Banksy as someone he had once busked with in Bristol, and the friend of his sister's boyfriend, and for 200 pounds (about $300 at the time), he agreed to turn his trailer into a blank canvas for the Glastonbury music festival.Recently pried off the trailer, the work went on auction Monday in Paris.The trailer made its way to other festivals over the years, with Nathan driving and setting up tents as he had in the years before the spray paint hit his home.Nathan doesn't quite describe himself as a commissioner of artwork, but the piece became part of his life over more than a decade, after he met his wife and the two of them started a family.
