Banksy Shredded His Own Painting After It Sold for $1.4 million

Banksy isn’t just a great artist, he’s a master troll as well.

At a Sotheby’s auction in London. Banksy’s “Girl With Balloon” painting was sold for $1.4 million. What the buyer didn’t know was that Banksy had installed a paper shredder inside the frame just in case it ever did sell. A few seconds after auction ended, the painting shredded itself to the surprise of everyone in the audience. Bravo, Banksy.
