His work is well known across the art world with paintings sell for well over $1 Million. The most intriguing thing about Banksy is that no one know his real identity. To be a street artist and never been seen is quite amazing to me.
Check out his website which is updated everyday with his latest art installation in New York. This last weekend Banksy hired an elderly man to sell original paintings for $60 a piece at an art stand outside Central Park. They only sold 8 paintings to 3 people, these painting are worth an estimated $30,000.
