That crazy English street artist is at it again!
The notorious Banksy may have committed his most shocking prank to date last night. One of the artist’s most iconic images – a little girl with a balloon heart – was being auctioned last night at Sotheby’s. Once the gavel struck on a winning $1.4 million dollar bid for the piece, the picture was suddenly shredded by a hidden shredder installed inside the frame of the art work. Audience members looked on with a mixture of shock, horror and humor while auction house workers rushed to preserve the damaged piece. One onlooker said that he believed he saw an individual with a strange looking remote control who activated the shredder at the appropriate moment.
In his next act, Banksy will shred 1.4 million dollars right before your eyes!
