Banksy loves organizing pranks!
In this video, he has organized art sale the street New York City near Central Park. Each work of art costs $60. Customers buy it as souvenir from NYC, as gift or to decorate their house. Some people even ask for discount and get 50 percent off.
Banksy probably organised this event to surprise people and to say that art should be accessible and affordable to anyone. He may hope his action will change the world of art.
In the second video, art sale takes place Sotheby’s, the famous auction house London, and artwork costs $1.4 million. Banksy organised prank during sale of his famous painting, Girl with Balloon. The painting self destructed once sold. There was a shredder installed inside the frame of the painting. People were speechless and surprised by this prank.
The expression “We got Banksy-ed” means that people who bought the artwork and those who were the auction sale were fooled by Banksy. They thought they could buy Banksy’s artwork but it was trick: Banksy outwitted them! He certainly wanted to denounce the fact that it is ridiculous to sell and buy artworks at such price!
