Banksy Gives Back

The most famous, and elusive, street artist in the world just gave a $320,000 painting to a British band for using their name, Exit Through The Gift Shop, as the title of his new documentary. Banksy apologized for unwittingly "stealing" their name and asked them if they wouldn't mind changing it. Exit Through the Gift Shop (the band) is now known as Brace Yourself. Seems like a fair trade.
