Our favorite street artist over here at theCHIVE, Banksy, has been on a tear in New York painting about one installation per day. For his latest stunt, Banksy set up a street vendor stand selling original Banksy stencil art for $60 a piece. He hired some old dude to man the booth and sold $420 worth of art that day to clueless customers who just hit the street art lottery for being in the right place at the right time... and having great taste in art. One of the lucky buyers is from Chicago and purchased 4 pieces. theCHIVE will be in Chicago this week for the KCCO Black Lager launch party and we'd love to interview this man and take photos of the pieces he purchased. If you are the guy or know the guy in the blue shirt at the end of the video below, please contact us at thechiverules@gmail.com with his contact info.
