article imageVideo: Banksy sells original art in NYC and no one really notices

By Anne Sewell     Oct 14, 2013 in Entertainment
New York - Most people have heard of street artist Banksy and many have seen his work, either in person on a wall or in photographic form. On Sunday, people actually had the opportunity to buy his work in New York, but most didn't even notice.
For those who don't know who Banksy is, Wikipedia describes him as follows:
"Banksy is a pseudonymous England-based graffiti artist, political activist, film director, and painter.
His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humor with graffiti done in a distinctive stenciling technique. Such artistic works of political and social commentary have been featured on streets, walls, and bridges of cities throughout the world."
Including, it seems New York City.
On October 13, a stall was set up in Central Park, NYC, laden with the very recognizable work of Banksy.
On the website of Banksyny this morning it says, "Yesterday I set up a stall in the park selling 100% authentic original signed Banksy canvases. For $60 each."
While it cannot be sure if the man in the video is Banksy himself, it is interesting to watch most people walking past that iconic artwork, with the exception of a few people who actually made a purchase.
The lucky buyers even got a hug and a kiss.
For only $60 a piece, this Chicago man got four pieces of 100 percent authentic original signed Banksy canvases for his new house:

Oh, by the way, don't bother going back to that spot today — in true Banksy style, the stall will not be there.
On the home page of the website, we can see some amazing street art by Banksy in the city, including the very imaginative concrete confessional.
