A Graffiti Artist Making A Million Dollars on one piece … Then Hits the Streets of NYC = $420 … Really ?

Talk about breaking the mold … UK graffiti artist, Banksy, is certainly shaking it up in more ways than one. It can be said that a graffiti artist charging more than $1 million dollars is definitely breaking the mold.

How about achieving that level of notoriety then … opening up a simple artist stall on a street corner in NYC without any fanfare. Now that’s a little different.

What is amusing about the NYC story is that Banksy even needed to negotiate with one lady finally accepting $30 for a piece. He raked in a whopping $420 that day.
