The piece called Keep it Real is a spray-painted canvas depicting a chimpanzee wearing a sandwich board that reads "keep it real".

It could fetch more than a million dollars, which would make it the most expensive work by a living contemporary artist to be sold in New Zealand.

Two other Banksy works will also be up for auction tonight.
