Banksy's Latest Trick

Banksy Stall

Banksy stall in Central Park

In a ploy to win over the hearts and minds of New York, Banksy, in his latest endeavor, set up stall in Central Park. However, unlike the many other touristy-trinket-trouting vendors, the unknown gentleman manning Banksy's stand had for sale 100% authentic and signed Banksy works available for the (really quite) reduced price of $60. The stunt is seen as a commentary on the art world and coincides with Banksy’s month-long exhibition in New York called Better Out Than In, in which he secretly creates a new artwork every day and posts his progress on Instagram.
