Banksy planned the artwork’s self-destruction years ago More
Speculation is growing that Banksy, the world-famous guerrilla artist whose identity remains unknown, was sitting in the Sotheby'sauction in London on Saturday.
The art world was left in shreds when Banksy's famous Girl with Balloon - one of the artist's most famous works depicting an image of a girl releasing a red balloon - self-destructed.
Banksy bragged about his latest stunt in a post on Instagram, where he wrote, "going, going, gone".
And the Sotheby's head of contemporary art moaned "we've just been Banksy'ed".
"Girl With Balloon", one of Banksy's most widely recognised works, shows a girl reaching towards a heart-shaped balloon and was the final work sold at the auction on Friday night, the BBC reported.
The clip is captioned "The urge to destroy is also a creative urge" - a quote from 19th-century anarchist Mikhail Bakunin which Banksy attributes to Pablo Picasso.
There's no word on how the shredder started operating at the key moment after the auction, though it could have been activated by a remote mechanism. The sale price equalled the artist's previous auction record of about $1.35 million.
The dramatic moment prompted a slew of questions - especially since Banksy claims to have installed the machinery years ago.
