Did buy a Banksy Litho while ... euhm ... drunk!
Just after new year, a mate was following an auction in Ebay. The piece being actioned was a Banksy. Named: The girl with the red balloon.
He does know a lot more about art than I do. While I do know Banksy.
Okay I don't know him, almost nobody does know who he is.
So, just for the fun I said, place a bet of $125 in my name. Assuming that somebody would over bid that. This was 4 minutes before the close of the auction. To my surprise, I did have the winning bid. Combined with auction costs and shipping, the total bill was €138.
The litho has a limited print of 150 pieces. No idea which number I have. Also it is signed.
No idea if I overpaid it or if it is a correct price. Also no idea what I will do with it. Apparently the host of the party was also interested. Probably I will give it to him as a birthday present in June. He is a real friend and if I do need help with something he is always present.
Wondering if I could turn that into an NFT!
Sounds too good to be true ;p
