Banksy is a pseudonym for the world-famous English graffiti artist whose true origin and identity is secret. On Saturday, a Banksy booth popped up in Central Park. Banksy recruited an anonymous older gentleman to sell several of his original works for US$60 (each one is actually worth over $40K!).
Banksy is currently hosting a month-long "live exhibition" called Better Out Than In: An Artist Residency on the Streets of New York, in which he creates a new piece of outdoor art each day.
