One of the biggest stories in the art world this year was street artistBanksy having his painting "self-destruct" just moments after the work sold for almost $1.4 million at auction. Banksy intended that the entire painting, not half of it, be destroyed when the shredder was activated by the gavel when it dropped at the end of the winning bid, according to a new video posted by Banksy.
Some experts believe the prank has increased the value of the artwork.
Speculation about the artist's motives has been rife since the painting was partially shredded by a device inside the frame as the hammer went down, astonishing the audience at London'sSotheby auction house. In this sense, it's possible to argue that Banksy is suggesting that art is becoming consumed by money, where every piece has become synonymous with an assigned monetary worth.
Theories have spread over how he carried out the stunt - and the artist has now released a new video showing some of the secrets.
One of Banksy paintings was shredded just few seconds after it was sold in an auction in London. "In case it was ever put up for auction".
When a Banksy painting "self-destructed" after selling at auction for £1.04 million ($1.4 million) last week, it looked like the flawless stunt - one that caught onlookers and the art world by surprise.
