Rich McCormick for The Verge:
The sale was created by artists Dave Cicirelli and Lance Pilgrim. They copied Banksy’s own sale from a week earlier, setting up a stall in the same location, with the same signage, selling copies of Banksy’s works for the same price — $60 — as the original artist. The only difference: the stall was clearly marked as a fake. Salesman Michael Pilgrim posed for pictures with buyers holding a sign clearly marked “Fake Banksy,” and all purchases came with a Certificate of Inauthenticity.
We’re a weird bunch.
