Banksy made waves again in a big way when his artwork was shredded mere moments after selling for 850,000 pounds or $1.4 million at a Sotheby’s Auction, It was something very unreal and I couldn’t believe the news at all because it seems like a scene from Pink Panther. The painting has allegedly doubled in value now after the stunt, and the facts behind it led many to believe it was a planned stunt.
Now, the artist has uploaded a “director’s cut” of his stunt that answers some of the questions folks had about how this happened. For example, a worker reveals that Banksy requested to make a frame for the piece which he had given away nearly a decade earlier, and that it’s a common practice for artists to do. He also showed a demo run of the painting being destroyed and the device that was used to trigger the shredder.
