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, added a Nazi and his signature to it, and returned it to the shop, which is now auctioning it off. Current bid on what he calls, straight-faced, "oil on oil on canvas," is $213,513.
