$1,300,000 BANKSY artwork piece just “self-destructed” right after it was sold at Sotheby’s

The biggest Troll on the block just got Richie Rich again. It seems that one of his most known paintings was triggered to self destruct if sold. This is not Banksy’s first time at the rodeo and even if it had been, well, that rodeo could be covered in graffiti that is priceless. Like on Friday night, when Sotheby’s auctioned off the unidentified street artist’s renowned 2006 work”Girl with a Balloon” to the equivalent of over $1.2 million. Following the market closed, an alert reportedly sounded from the pieceand the canvas slowly started to slip down…into a shredder mounted in the painting’s frame, ripping it into small strips, a really wonderful Banksy minute you can see for yourself in the photographs below.

“It appears we just got Banksy-ed,” Alex Branczik, Sotheby’s European manager of modern art informed the Art Newspaper. “He is arguably the best British street performer, and tonight we watched a little bit of Banksy genius.” Branczik also said he was”not in on the ruse,” which really takes it to that next level.

According to the Financial Times, the seller selling the piece acquired”Girl with a Balloon” straight from the artist . Said Sotheby’s in a statement,”We’ve spoke with the successful buyer who was surprise from the story. We are in conversation about next steps” Many outlets have hypothesized the stunt required Banksy (or a broker there of) to maintain the room to activate the shredder. Reports the Art Newspaper,”a man dressed in black athletic sunglasses and a hat has been seen scuffling with safety guards near the entry to Sotheby’s shortly after the incident.”
