Banksy, the world famous street artist set up a street stall yesterday in New York where he sold roughly $225,000 worth of art for just $420. The entire art stall was most likely holding over $1 million worth of canvases. The stall that was set-up yesterday almost had no interest from the New-Yorkers. There was an old man watching over the art stall which was only labelled “Spray Art.”
Over the course of the day one woman bought two small canvases and negotiated a 50 percent discount! Later a young woman bought a bigger canvas for regular price. Then some guy from Chicago bought four pieces for his new house. He was just looking to put “something for the walls.” I’ve included a little video presentation that was posted.
On his website he said the following:
Yesterday I set up a stall in the park selling 100% authentic original signed Banksy canvases.
For $60 each.
He also posted the following video:
This is part of his ‘New York Tour’, where he’s been giving locations for some of his New York artwork on his website. Don’t you wish you would have gone to Central Park on Saturday instead of Comic-Con!
