RE: CryptoGraffiti’s Take On The $120,000 Banana
Crypto artist CrytpoGraffiti’s troll on that *** banana “art” that was making the rounds last week
Cryptocurrency Artist Recreates Famous $120,000 Duct-Taped Banana Art Installation
“Cryptocurrency artist and designer, CryptoGraffiti, carved a private key to a Bitcoin address onto a banana and taped it to a wall, asking someone to claim it before it rots away. The act takes after a recently famous $120,000 artwork installation of a banana taped to a wall at Art Basel which was later consumed by performance artist David Datuna.
The Art Basel Miami Beach, a premier art show in Miami, Florida, has been making the news for one very peculiar reason: a man ate a banana that was taped to the Emmanuel Perrotin outer gallery wall, deemed a piece of art with a price tag of $120,000, for which he has received more praise than criticism.
David Datuna, a performance artist, then ate the fruit, which was the work of Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan titled ‘Comedian.’”
