London (AP) — At the Thursday auction, the work of British street artist Banksy, who sensationally self-crushed shortly after selling for $ 1.4 million, was once again sold for $ 25 million.
The “Love is a Recycle Bin” was provided by Sotheby’s in London, with pre-sale estimates of £ 4 to $ 6 million ($ 5.5 million to $ 8.2 million).
It consists of a canvas shredded in half of a glamorous frame with a spray-painted image of a girl reaching for a heart-shaped red balloon.
When it was last sold at Sotheby’s in October 2018, the piece was known as “Girl With Balloon.” Just as an anonymous European buyer won, the hidden shredder embedded in the frame by Banksy came alive, with half of the canvas hanging strips from the frame.
Sotheby’s says that stunt-created works are “ultimate Banksy artwork.”
