:cheesy: Banksy artwork shreds itself after £1m sale at Sotheby's

Post by Kitkat on Sat 06 Oct 2018, 17:47

A stencil spray painting by elusive artist Banksy shredded itself after it was sold for more than £1m.

The framed Girl With Balloon, one of the artist's best known works, was auctioned by Sotheby's in London.

The piece which shows a girl reaching towards a heart-shaped balloon was the final work sold at the auction.

However, moments after the piece went under the hammer, the canvas passed through a shredder that was hidden inside the frame.

Obviously, an ingenious publicity stunt by the elusive Banksy himself!
