And I absolutely love this. Banksy, an artist from England, who is doing a month long ‘residency’ on the streets of New York, set up a stall in Central Park and recruited the man in the video to sell his pieces on the street. At the end of the day, his sales totaled $420. While he was selling these pieces for $60 each, they are potentially worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. It makes me feel a bit better (but also…worse?) knowing that even what is considered to be great art (and in this instance by great art, I’m talking about the monetary value of art we assign as a community) doesn’t fly off the shelves.
