Banksy Sold Art in Central Park
Yes, it’s true. Banksy’s “Better Out Than In” residency in New York continued with an unexpected twist, in the form of him selling art in Central Park. The video below shows an hourly recap of people walking past the booth without noticing the pieces on sale for $60. A few people made purchases, but hardly any, making a truly striking commentary on how context and marketing influences the buying and selling of art. Bansky says on Instagram that “This was a one off.” Sucks for anyone in New York who missed the opportunity to buy some rare art.
