Banksy Sets up Shop Near Central Park, Few Notice: VIDEO

Banksy

You missed the chance to get an original Banksy over the weekend. Apparently a lot of people did. "Yesterday I set up a stall in the park selling 100% authentic original signed Banksy canvases. For $60 each," the street artist, who's holding a month-long 'exhibition' in New York City, announced on his website.

'More Out Than In' will be running all month. Find it when and where you can. More works here.

Video, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. I'm sure he thinks there's some lesson in people passing up amazing things that are right under their noses. To me, the lesson is that his art's value is relative to the context it's in. A stencil on a canvas isn't even worth $60. To make out with $420 seems good to me.

  4. A work of art's value is only that which someone is willing to pay for it, regardless of what the artist or anyone else thinks it's worth at the time.

    This is the standard for art sales and there's always a lot of shock and embarrassment at auctions due to this fact.

  7. Don't love his art either, but Banksy (kind of the anti-Damien Hirst, which places Mr. B higher on my list) has made an interesting point here; and either knocked down the value of his previously auctioned pieces or made a few smart street buyers a lot richer.

  8. Graffiti demonstrates there's a fine line between art & vandalism.
