Thanks for the history, Banksy
London – The woman who bid more than £1 million (R19 million) for a painting by the mysterious British artist Banksy which shred itself into pieces at the moment of the sale has gone ahead with the purchase, Sotheby’s said on Thursday.
Onlookers gasped and laughed after the bottom half of Girl with Balloon, one of Banksy’s bestknown works, was sucked into a shredder hidden in its frame as the hammer fell last Friday. "I realised that I would end up with my own piece of art history,” the unnamed buyer said. – Reuters
