Shredded Banksy Canvas Sells For Record $25.4 Million In London


Partially shredded Banksy canvas works sold in London for 18.6 million euros ($25.4 million)

London:

A partially shredded canvas of one of Banksy’s most celebrated works sold in London on Thursday for 18.6 million euros ($25.4 million), Sotheby’s auction house said, a record price for the British artist.  

The artwork — now called “Love is in the Bin” — sold for nearly 1.1 million euros at the same location in October 2018 before it dramatically passed through a shredder hidden in its frame moments after bidding ended.
