Banksy: Shredding of auctioned painting failed

  • Banksy posted a clip of himself building the shredder that ripped up a $2m painting

Even though footage featured in the new video proves that Banksy (or someone from his camp) was at the auction when the shredding occurred, the video also states, "Some people think it didn't really shred".

Nearly two weeks after Banksy shared a short video via Instagram confirming that he was behind the shredding of his famous Girl With Balloon artwork while at auction, the artist has released a director's cut video documenting the stunt.

Banksy posted a clip of himself building the shredder that ripped up a $2m painting.

"The Girls With the Balloon" self-destructed moments after an anonymous bidder offered a whopping $1.4 million to buy it at the Sotheby's auction held in London earlier this month.

Banksy reveals that the frame he made to shred his painting "Girl with Balloon" worked successfully during practice runs before it ended up at Sotheby's auction house.

The self-destruction of Banksy's £1 million painting immediately after being purchased at an auction has sent the internet into a flurry of debate as people try to search for the real meaning behind this dramatic stunt.

The almost three-minute-long video is titled, "Shred the Love, the Director's cut".

Oliveux said if Banksy was planning another stunt for the next auction, it probably wouldn't involve a secret shredder.

The auction house said it can not predict how high the bidding will go for its three prints, but it expects the extra attention from Banksy's last stunt will have an impact on prices. Partial shredding of the masterpiece is shown, as auctioneers rushed to take the work off the wall and out of the room.

"When the hammer came down last week and the work was shredded, I was at first shocked, but gradually I began to realize that I would end up with my own piece of art history", the unnamed purchaser said, per Sotheby's.

The dark-humored satirist then announced online that the scraps had been renamed "Love is in the Bin".
