QPR’s Renaissance Man Joey Barton Buys A Banksy

By Alan Duffy

Not content with sporting an uber-trendy haircut atop his bonce and quoting Nietzsche, Joey Barton’s transformation into a footballing Nathan Barley has taken another very cred turn, with the bad-boy picking up a Banksy at a charity auction in Kensal Green.

The piece of art, entitled “CND”, cost the QPR midfielder a cool £6,000, and will, according to Barton, “look decent in my office.”

Fair play to the guy for supporting the childrens’ charity auction and for escaping the clichéd image of the modern day footballer.  But how long before the footballing media node appears on ?

    does he realise that, at £6000, it’s a print, albeit a limited edition one?

    6k is pretty cheap for a banksy, if i was an uber-rich footy player i’d buy some too

    I can only envisage his office being some hipster, ultra-violent batcave with an array of weapons, hair products and heavily starched Fred Perry shirts on the wall surrounding his desk/table.

    Yeah probably does have an office cos according to his twitter he runs two succesful business haha!

    Love the Nathan Barley references, not sure I agree with the ‘shit artist’ comment though.
