If you were walking around Central Park in New York on Saturday you may have missed the opportunity of a lifetime! Banksy set up up a little art stall on the edge of Central Park where he sold stenciled prints for only $60 a pop. This is what he wrote on his website
"Yesterday I set up a stall in the park selling 100% authentic original signed Banksy canvases. For $60 [£38] each."
There was an old man watching over the art stall which was only labeled "Spray Art." But they were actual Banksy pieces! The crazy thing is... only 3 people bought prints! Prints that could put their kids through college if theyknew what they really had!
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.
Banksy sold about $225,000 worth of art for just $420. The entire art stall was most likely holding over $1 million worth of canvases. I wish to hell I would have gone to Central Park on Saturday instead of Comic-Con! That's like winning the lottery!
