Banksy outdid himself Friday night when one of his most famous paintings scored a $1.4 million bid and then it suddenly shredded into pieces.
The auction went down at Sotheby’s in London and just after the gavel went down, the painting -- "Girl With Balloon" -- began disappearing from view.
The canvas slid down the frame, which became a shredder, cutting the artwork into smithereens.
The audience looked horrified, but get this ... the person who scored the piece was “surprised” but apparently didn’t back out of the deal. The buzz is, that the shredded artwork may actually be worth more than $1.4 mil.
