Now for some news that will make every New Yorker that went for a walk in park last weekend scream “Shuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks!” while waving their fist in the air!!
Famously anonymous British artist Banksy, whose graffiti goes for upwards of six figures in art auctions pulled a undercover STUNT QUEEN move when he had an old man set up a humble stand filled with his spray-painted canvases in New York’s Central Park.
Banksy, who is droppin’ new graffiti bombz during his NYC “residency” this month, posted a video on his website showing a grumpy grandpa type — not the Banksy — working at a stall at the park on Sunday selling “SPRAY ART” with each piece going for 60 bucks! Yes, you coulda had one!! You coulda been crusing the boys in Sheepsmeadow and then got a frozen lemonade on fifth avenue with TiTi and then picked up a Banksy worth tens of thousands for 60 bucks!
Only 8 were sold with one person bargaining the price down to 2 for 60!! Those lucky 8 Mofos are riiiiiich! Ebay here they come!
But dont go running to the park next weekend to get your Banksy. Along with the video Banksy’s site posted:
“Please note: This was a one off. The stall will not be there again today.”
