This is just AMAZING! Apparently, famous street artist "Banksy" sold some canvas spray art this past Saturday on the streets of Manhattan for $60. You heard right...60 DOLLARS! Oh...& the BEST part was, these unsuspecting buyers had NO idea WHO the artist was.
Just WATCH this Banksy "Pop-Up Shop" all go down here...
Incredible! It was only CONFIRMED that these WERE in fact original Banksy works of art when the above video was actually posted on his blog!
The artist also confirmed in the video that in fact those were his paintings by saying, “Yesterday I set up a stall in the park selling 100% authentic original signed Banksy canvases. For $60 each."
& did we forget to mention that EACH work of art that was sold was worth somewhere around $31,000!! OMG! Consider those purchasers with a fine eye for art LUCKY (especially the ones who bought more than one). Oh, & don't all those "passer-by's" just feel pretty stupid right about now?? Why couldn't WE have been in Central Park that day??
