The Identity of Banksy for Sale on eBay



There's no need for introductions when I mention the infamous street artist, Banksy. His identity has always been a mystery, but it looks like someone has figured it out. By matching up the prices of his sold pieces to corresponding tax records, this highly sought after information can now be purchased on eBay. The price is now at $15,100.00 USD, with 3 days and 15 hours left to bid. How much are you willing to pay for Banksy's identity? Click here to view the eBay post. The price is hefty, but at least shipping is free?

@brigduong Oh, it's not someone trying to buy someone's identity. It's just wanting to know Banksy's real name. Banksy is a street artist who always remains anonymous when he does his work. No one knows what he looks like or what his name is.

That's a bit creepy. Although slightly flattering if you're Banksy! But seriously, who has the time to go through tax records and find that info out...isn't that private information as well?

seriously so creepy. I wonder if it's something he could sue over. He want's to be anonymous for a raeson (it'd be way harder for him to create his art if everyone recognized him on the street). Ugh this is actually making me mad, people are so invasive and always looking for a way to profit off of someone. grrr!!!
