Banksy coughs up painting worth $305,000 all for a name!


Imagine being paid for $305,000 from a world renowned graffiti artist just for a name? Well, Simon Duncan has lived to tell the tale, as Banksy offered him a work of art in exchange of his band named ‘Exit Through the Gift Shop’ which is incidentally the name of Banksy next film.


The painting which features the grim reaper riding a dodgem car is now stored at Sotheby’s by the band. They plan to use a full size replica for their next performance.
