Inline image 1"The Banality of the Banality of the Banality of Evil"  Lizabeth Eva Rossof, 2013, Oil on Canvas, 25"W x 16"H, Signed and Framed

This Auction Benefits 826 Valencia through Betabrand’s  White Elephant Gift Shoppe. 

In October 2013 British artist and provocateur Banksy purchased a landscape painting from Housing Works, the non-profit thrift store that benefits and supports HIV+ homeless people in New York. 

Banksy then painted in a nazi soldier looking out at the landscape, added his signature below the original artist, K. Sager’s signature and titled the work "The Banality Of The Banality Of Evil." He then brought the revamped painting back to the thrift store for them to sell at an auction, where it sold for over $610,000, with all of the money benefitting Housing Works' foundation. 

In November of 2013, San-Francisco-based conceptual artist, Lizabeth Eva Rossof had a replica of the Bansky piece painted in China. Rossof added a red balloon and requested that the replicator's signature (Mario Ma) be added to the canvas that is now titled, "The Banality Of The Banality Of The Banality Of Evil." This finished work features four signatures: replica signatures of the landscape artist K. Sager and Banksy (who’s revamped piece auctioned for over 600K), and unique signatures of Mario Ma (the replicator), and Rossof. 

"The Banality Of The Banality Of The Banality Of Evil" be auctioned on eBay starting on December 13, 2013 as part of Betabrand's White Elephant Gift Shoppe Benefitting 826 Valencia , a local non-profit nurturing creativity in children through storytelling and creative writing tutorials and workshops. 


The painting will be on display at Betabrand.com HQ at 780 Valencia, San Francisco, CA, Friday Dec 13th to the 22nd, everyday from 11 to 7pm.
