eBay seller dares people to bid on piece of Shepard Fairey's mural

More pieces from Shepard Fairey's "May Day" mural from Houston and the Bowery are turning up on eBay...

Per the seller:

Up for auction is a piece of a wall, I mean crap, I mean "ART" from Houston St. x Bowery St. in New York City. This is a portion of a Shepard Fairey wheat paste "STREET ART" wall that people kicked in and wrote all over because no one [in] New York City respected this. I saw that someone else listed another piece of the wall starting at $100 and there were actually some bids. This truly disgusted me. Therefore, I will be listing this piece at one cent to show that this is a worthless piece of crap. If people do happen to bid on this, it will show that I was wrong and he is actually a respectable arti$t. (Shepard Fairey fans please feel free to bid) I will then be happy getting the benefit for his so-called "ART."

If you win this auction, I will careully pack and deliver this piece in a zip lock bag so that it looks important.

Thanks for your time and good luck bidding... or not (Either way, I win.)

It kind of looks like a piece of raw meat.

Huzzah. There is so much bullshit around us, especially in this information age, and what seems like increasingly few voices who will bother to call it out. Props to the seller.

A zip lock bag qualifies as important looking??? Get a frame and some packing peanuts and maybe I'll bid. lol.

I think the zip lock bag reference was to the other auction that is going for $102. This auction description was AMAZING... Fuck this corny street art for money culture.
