Prepare to kick yourselves, New Yorkers!

We know we sure are!

Banksy is the much talked about but never seen British graffiti artist who arrived in NYC last week for a one-month "show on the streets"!

He's already sprayed a few of his signature designs onto the sides of buildings, as well as unleashed a squealing truck of stuffed animals!

But yesterday he did the unthinkable…

HE SOLD HIS ARTWORK! FOR ONLY $60!!!

But being Banksy, of course he did it secretly!

Ch-ch-check out the video (below) and see how he set up a booth in Central Park in the middle of a busy Saturday afternoon!

His table was unmarked and the man sitting there was a decoy and not the artist himself.

Passers-by had no clue that the art they were walking by would in fact be valued well into the thousands!

But after nearly 7 hours, only THREE people stopped to purchase a painting!

And this booth ain't going to be open again! Banksy wrote on his website:

"Yesterday I set up a stall in the park selling 100% authentic original signed Banksy canvases. For $60 each. Please note: This was a one off. The stall will not be there again today."

Grrrr!!!

What we wouldn't give for one of these truly genius pieces!

Oh well. We guess we'll just admire his public works for the rest of his time in New York!

    Goes to show you how people value things. What its worth. and how "popularity" and people famous by media will up the value of something. The money people use to buy these painting isn't actually the for the art at all. Its for the name thats on it. Just to say " I own a Banksy" or whatever the item is by a certain "famous" person. SO SAD. people pay millions for "things" that have very lil value but just so they can show that their cock is bigger than the others, they'll pay a price. Im sick of society's way of life that way. sickening.

    Glad someone in the entertainment industry is bringing attention to factory farming, instead of wearing meat as a fashion statement. People need to educate themselves as to where their food is coming from and what they are putting in their bodies. 70% of the antibiotics in the US go to factory farms because animals are forced to live in their own cage of filth, and this is creating antibiotic resistant bacteria (not to mention all the growth hormones). Animals are equal (if not better than people) and they should be treated accordingly. What is done to these animals?

    Re: keeyth – Hey if you had an eye for it and were smart enough to buy one when you passed it, you'd be making a seriously HUGE profit for those pieces.

    I bet those people that bought one are laughing all the way to the bank. — Interesting concept, how people view art and how some will buy it once there is a "name" behind it and spend absurd amounts of money. But when they think it's an unknown they pass it over.

    Re: Stop factory farming – I know the conditions the animals are kept in, and guess what? I don't care. I enjoy meat and I will continue to eat it.

    Meh, he's just some hipster liberal fad that ended up going mainstream

    There's something really mesmerizing and special about Banksy's work, dollars aside.

    Re: Stop factory farming – What does your comment have to do with graffiti art in NYC?



  18. 18

    By the way, on topic, I do not consider graffiti as "art". If I was a homeowner I would really be annoyed and sue for the cost of removal. But I live in the suburbs in SoCal and I live in security building so I do not have to deal with this stuff.
