Banksy Sells Original, Expensive Artwork for $60 in NYC

by at . Comments

See, it's not so bad living in New York City.

Yes, you need to deal with the occasional rude police officer. But you also get to buy original pieces of art for really cheap prices!

Over the weekend, a British graffiti artist who goes by the name "Banksy" caused quite the stir in the Big Apple, setting up a booth in Central Park and selling items that some have valued in the thousands for a mere $60.

He teased the sale on his website and warned readers that it would be a one-day only event.

An elderly individual was manning the stall on Saturday and handing out hugs to patrons, but his identity remains a mystery.

Banksy refuses to give his real name, despite his art turning up all over New York and social media over the past few weeks.
