BanksyNY Turns the Art World on Its Head

Bwahahahahaaa! LOVE today's piece from Banksy!

Banksy turns the art world upside down by setting up a sidewalk stall and selling 100% authentic original signed Banksy canvases for $60.

Every person in the world wants a Banksy and dreams of having one, right?  So guess how many sold? 8 canvases were sold, for a daily grand total of $420.  Two canvases were even haggled for at half price.

Incredible piece from Banksy.  Turning canvas art into performance art.

This demonstration shows how the art world is completely subjective.  Things in the art world only have value when someone says they have value.

Awesome stuff.  Please note, Banksy states that the art stall will not be there again today.
