Banksy reminds LU passengers to wear their masks. Amazingly, his elaborate
performance was on a busy in-service train, and was videoed by a
I wonder if that has doubled the value of the S7 carriage?
Or reduced it if like me you think Banksy is nothing more than a ham artist
who got famous for [reasons] with his undergrad art college level stencils.
The cost of an S stock carriage is about £1m. So four Banksy artworks each
have been sold for more than the cost of such a carriage. The highest
priced Banksy fetched more than the cost of a whole S stock train.
Well quite possibly and as Damien Hirst and Tracy Emin have been proving for
decades now - there are plenty of idiots who are willing to be parted from
their money for utter tat. Ditto Banksys. But given he uses stencils he can
recreate his "works" in seconds anywhere. Perhaps LU should have got him to
stencil some A, D and C stocks before they went to the scappers.
