Chicago man scores four Banksy pieces at New York City street stall

Graffiti artist Banksy announced his New York residency this month, and his presence is causing a stir around the Big Apple.

But only when his work appears in its “normal” spots — on walls, doors and the usual targets of taggers.

When he took to the street selling pieces from an artist’s stall, passersby were less than impressed with the “Spray Art” on sale for $60 a pop.

With the exception of a few eagle-eyed, or cost-conscious shoppers, the stall’s take was $420 for the day.

So, who’s this guy from Chicago who needed some art for his bare walls? Bet he won’t have houseguests for a bit.
