This recent event by Bansky is completely fascinating to me.
At a recent Sotheby’s Art Auction, Banksy had a painting up for auction. And just after it was sold for 1.4 million, it started to fall into a shredder built into the frame submitted by the artist.
It’s such a bold, clever, creative, dynamic thing to do. Ironically, it probably adds to it’s value after such a publicized event. The original owner has decided to keep the partially shredded work.
This sense of the unexpected he has created is truly awe-inspiring.
