I came across this hand painted Banksy stencil while walking around the Temple Street night market 2 days ago (someone seriously needs to teach the painting factories about how to make a stencil).
This is the first time I have seen a non-Chinese living artist for sale in the counterfeit painting markets; a possible metric for making the argument that Banksy is the most famous living artist.
Canvas cost negotiations started at $250 HKD ($32 USD). Michele offered him $50HKD to which he assured us that he can sell as many Banksy’s as he can get his hands on. In the end we took our $50HKD around the corner and bought a 4 pack of San Miguel.
