Here are some old school connect-I-cut pics, to get this going.    Most of these I took before digital cameras in the 90’s.

Doubt anyone cares, but i thought this was interesting...

 

 

The Reason why this is BULLSHIT.. (Below is the article)

 

Banksy obviously has a team of people working for him or with him. Maybe not on the art itself.. but the travel, the PR, legal, money laundering, etc.. The guy is definitely savvy as fuck and has pretty much any connection that he wants. (ie The SIMPSONS) I mean the guy touches something (with a stencil some paint, maybe a rubber glove here and there..) and it turns to gold. I was just in Park City, Utah.. The city has framed and put a protective plexiglass cover on Banksy’s street art.. graffiti.. vandalism.. whatever.

 

Do you really think he would let someone track his ass down via TAX records and an Ebay account.. He’s a professional criminal for fucks sake.. and probably made a fortune via his victimless crimes.

 

But the real reason this is fucked up…

 

FUCK A SNITCH.. Thats why.

 

Just my 2 cents..

Banksy to be unmasked via eBay Auction???

 

At press time, the winning bidder is offering one slim dollar shy of a million. Bidding started at $3,000; the auction has had 38 bids.

 

In the listing, the seller states, “I have uncovered [banksy’s] identity by matching up the prices of his sold pieces to corresponding tax records. I will reveal no more details… I give you 100% assurance that it is most certainly the full name of the street artist known as ‘Banksy.’”

 

The seller also says that eBay had previously terminated his auction because he was selling an intangible good; the seller is now technically offering for auction a piece of paper containing Banksy’s legal name.

 

The party offering Banksy‘s identity is hardly a power seller, having a fairly sparse but mostly positive record that dates back to 2001. At this time, we have no way of determining whether the winning bidder is being taken to the cleaners to the tune of $1 million or whether the seller is legitimately peddling an exclusive glimpse into the identity of a public figure who clearly wants to be anything but public.

 

Banksy gained a bit of stateside exposure in October 2010 when he directed an opening sequence for The Simpsons.

 

What do you think of this auction? Would you want to know Banksy’s identity, or do you think he deserves to live privately and relatively anonymously? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
