VIDEO: Banksy sells his art on the street for $60 a pop – and we all missed it!

This past weekend graffiti artist/prankster/statement maker Banksy pulled another one of his stunts by selling his art on the street for a mere $60 a pop. He brought in an older man to play the street vendor, set up shop with 100% authentic pieces on display – and documented the one day sale on video. Watch it all happen in the clip above as much of the prices get haggled by customers, many of them unfamiliar with Banksy’s work obviously, as one man put it “I just need something for the walls.” Perhaps this is art being appreciated in the purest form, without hype or expectations, but don’t we all feel dumb for missing this one.
