After a lawsuit by the estate of late New York City artist Jean-Michel Basquiat suggested some of the works may be fakes, Christie’s auction house has removed one piece for review.
A collection of artwork by one of New York City’s most famed graffiti artists was about to be auctioned off Monday.
British street artist Banksy was taking the day off from creating artworks for his New York “residency” Wednesday, for what he called “police activity.”
British street artist Banksy has now hit all five boroughs in his month-long New York “residency” and his work has continued to turn heads.
Banksy wrote on his website that he had set up a stall in Central Park on Saturday with original signed works.
The elusive British artist Banksy has been the talk of New York in recent days, since his graffiti works have begun appearing around the city in what he called an attempt to “host an entire show on the streets of New York.”
