I really haven't paid attention to the artwork, but I like his/her style.

Banksy artwork shreds itself after £1m sale at Sotheby's

Brilliant! Financially painful, but brilliant.

Really. Good. Batteries.

I'd like some more info on who had this painting all those years.

>worth more

The website MyArtBroker.com, which resells Banksy pieces, said Girl with Balloon had enjoyed annual increases in value of about 20% in recent years. “Prices now are regularly exceeding £115,000 for signed authenticated prints,” said its co-founder Joey Syer.

“The auction result will only propel this further and given the media attention this stunt has received, the lucky buyer would see a great return on the £1.02m they paid last night.

This is now part of art history in its shredded state and we’d estimate Banksy has added at a minimum 50% to its value, possibly as high as being worth £2m plus.

Banksy is getting multi-$millions media out of this stunt.  Intertubes going nuts. I'm going to have to filter,

I just wish that the entire painting woudl have shredded itself and fell to the floor in pieces.  That is the only thing to make it better.
