Banksy's Nazi-Infused Banality of the Banality of Evil Raises Alot of Money For A Good Cause
Nearing the end of his month-long residency on the streets of New York, street artist and showman Banksy bought a nondescript landscape from a thrift shop for Housing Works, which advocates for the homeless and those living with HIV/AIDS, for 50 bucks. He added a Nazi and his signature to it, and returned it to the shop, which is now auctioning it off online. Current bid on the work, which Banksy classifies on his website as "oil on oil on canvas," is $213,513. Go figure.
