British graffiti-master and famed artist, Banksy, sold his works at a typical-looking market stall for $60 in Central Park this Sunday. In the above video, you can see an elderly man pawning off the Banksy's like they're knock-offs, but the reality is that the $60 authentic pieces are worth closer to $32,000 according to The Mirror.

In the two and a half minute video, eight paintings are sold. Four of which are sold to just one man from Chicago. Should he resell, he could be looking at over $100,000. Two of the paintings in the video are sold to a mom, who manages to buy two small paintings for the price of one for her children.

Reportedly, the booth made $420 for the whole day.

Banksy has been creating street art over the last two weeks in New York in a project called "Better Out Than In." The project is to go on for a month, but don't rush over to Central Park to pick up your Banksy windfall just yet:

Here's the latest pieces via Banksy's website:

He also put a bunch of stuffed animals in a cattle truck, calling it "Sirens of the Lambs." The vehicle drove throughout New York October 11th.

Banksy also received attention recently because people were charging others to view his work in East New York.
