United Kingdom : BANKSYs NAZI reworking of oil painting hits $310,000 in auction.

World-renowned illusive street artist, Banksy, is completing up his 30 days long residence, "Better Out Than In," in New York City with a bang. The artist bought a traditional scenery oil artwork at the Housing Works thrift shop on 23rd street for $50, then vandalized it and donated it back. The renewed item functions a Nazi soldier looking out into the relaxed landscapes. The bidding for "The Banality of The Banality of Evil" has now exceeded $310,000.

Generally Banksy works of art elegance grace the walls of buildings or vehicles, developing their credit as much in existence as cleverness and art. But this item is unique in its concept. No matter how small the canvas, the concept is similarly as complicated as in the bigger than life paintings.
