Banksy Central Park Stall

God save us all from an artist with a sense of humor. A few days ago, legendary street artist Banksy set up a nondescript stall in Central Park and was letting go of exclusive pieces for just $60 each.

It was part of Banksy’s ongoing “residence” in New York City called “Better Out Than In,” which has the artist and his work popping up all over the city in unexpected places. But this particular project has the whiff of interest that only hard mathematical figures can bring, because despite having been sold for $60, all the pieces sold from the shop are now valued at more than $30,000 each.

There’s a video of the whole thing, presumably shot by Banksy, below. And if you happen to be in New York, keep your eyes peeled because something like this could happen again.
