Banksy, the elusive British street artist, pulled off another fantastic stunt over the weekend, selling pieces of his spray artwork — which typically fetch tens of thousands of dollars at auction — from a Central Park vendor stall for $60 apiece.
“Yesterday I set up a stall in the park selling 100% authentic original signed Banksy canvases," the artist wrote on his website Sunday. "For $60 each."
Just three people took advantage of the one-day sale, with passersby assuming the works were knockoffs.
