NEW YORK (AP) — Banksy, the British graffiti artist causing a sensation in New York City, says he sold his artwork over the weekend for only $60 apiece.

Banksy wrote on his website that he had set up a stall in Central Park on Saturday with original signed works.

But the secretive artist warned on Sunday: "That stall will not be there again today."

The website features a photo and video of the pop-up stall with a sign that read: "Spray Art. $60."

His works typically sell for thousands of dollars.

A number of people are seen buying the works and getting hugs from an elderly man working the stall. It's not clear who the man is. Banksy refuses to give his real name.

His work has been turning up on the city's streets and all over social media in recent weeks.
