Banksy sells his work for $60 each
October 15 , 2013
Banksy sold his art worth $32,000 each for much cheaper. The collection was sold by an elderly man for $60 each and the works looked like they were full of fakes, even though they were "100% authentic" and signed by Banksy himself.
The stand at Central Park made only $460 in a day with some buyers even negotiating and paying lower prices than $60.
For those of you who love the works of this artist, there is a bad news: the stall won't be there again. "I know street art can feel increasingly like the marketing wing of an art career, so I wanted to make some art without the price tag attached," Banksy said.
The artist mentioned that he plans on creating "elaborate graffiti, large scale street sculpture video installation, or substandard performance art" every month on the same day.
