Banksy Sells Art for $60 in NYC

Banksy is halfway through his one-month residency in New York, with a new work of street art appearing each day. So far weโ€™ve seen a truck full of stuffed animals drive through the Meatpacking District (Sirens of the Lambs) and various spraypainted murals show up across the city. However, Sundayโ€™s contribution may be the most interesting yet.

In a video posted to his website on Sunday night, Banksy revealed that he (or at least an associate), had been selling original artwork from a street stall all day. In other words, anyone in Central Park could have just strolled past and bought a painting by one of the most famous living artists in the world.
