Charging for Banksy

Charging for Banksy

This week a group of young people on the east side of New York City have been seen charging people up to $20 to view the famous street artist Banksy’s latest installation in his month-long residency on the streets of New York. A little under two weeks into Banksy’s NY residency his works have already been ruined by art rivals, sprayed over with other graffiti tags and even completely painted over by individuals unaware of Banksy’s fame. The young people caught charging money to see the latest work had covered up the art with a cardboard box in order to preserve it as well as to make money off of Banksy’s notoriety.
