Bansky self-destructive art performance

The Bristol street artist’s iconic Girl with a Balloon artwork was shred into pieces moments it went under the hammer at Sotheby’s. The piece sparked a intense bidding  when it came up for auction at a sale at the London auction house yesterday.

It was listed at £300,000 but it soon more than doubled the estimate and raced up to a final deal of £860,000 or £1 million including taxes.
