Wow! Are you kidding me?!
In all places. In New York fuckin’ city. They can’t recognize the greatest street artist there is? I know there are modern art collectors out there LOOSING THEIR SHIT over this.
Talk about being in the right place at the right time.
Geez had that been me I would have also negotiated down to $30 each AND picked up 4 pieces.
Of course I would have asked of the keeper if these were authentic Banksy pieces.
It does to show that the value of art is purely subjective… especially street art. The amount we put on creation is purely how we see fit. No institution or no amount of collectors should be able to dictate a price just because they see fit.
I seriously like this social experiment.
Banksy, please come to Dallas with this. Feel free to send an email to me at UrbanJungleFashion@gmail.com when you do.
