Banksy: Artist’s New Auction Record as Shredded Canvas Love is in the Bin for £ 18.5 Million at Sotheby’s | Ent & Arts News

Banksy’s Love is in the Bin (self-shredded artwork after it was sold in 2018) sold for £ 18.5m, the artist’s record at the auction.

Sotheby’s said the “obsolete remote-controlled shredder mechanism” is still within the framework.

This work was originally titled Girl With Red Balloon when it was sold again at Sotheby’s in October 2018.

But the picture is “Self-destruction” immediately after sale And this case is now one of the artist’s most famous stunts.

Anonymous buyers of the 2018 auction retained the artwork and made a very healthy profit of around £ 15m (after the auctioneer cut).
