Half-shredded Banksy painting auctioned for over £ 18 million

A partially shredded work by British artist Banksy was auctioned again on Thursday in London. It achieved a record price of more than 18 million pounds, as the auction house Sotheby’s reported.

Sotheby’s had the picture three years ago Love is in the bin (Love is in the bucket) auctioned for a million pounds – a few moments before a shredder built into the frame surprisingly got going.

Shortly afterwards, Banksy confessed to the action. The picture is one of Banksy’s most famous motifs, it shows a girl reaching for a heart-shaped red balloon. On Friday, Christie’s auction house in London is auctioning another version of the motif. (AFP)
