    Don't expect this to be up for long, as it shows Banksy himself clearly in the audience. Grab it while you can kids, our hero is uber keen on censoring anything about him by others - esp the true stuff :-) Copy/ paste & search; London Dada Banksy Unmasked for Real

    This is retarded. The painting sucks and anyone that bid that much is also retarded. Also the artist should be charged with destruction of property as the gentleman clearly bought the painting before he "decided" to shred it. LOCK HIM UP!

    What's wrong with people, spending that kind of money for a mediocre work? There are tons of much more talented artists. I know that buying junk like that can be used to launder money, but at least, if you're laundering money, support talent!

    I'm amazed by how that mechanism still worked after so many years (even if perhaps it eventually got stuck).
    ...But the funniest thing of this is that the buyer now has a unique and much more valuable "work of art" (???). ... 3:)

    Why is the paper bright white in the frame, but dull white or brownish when it comes through the shredder? i.e, the intact part in the frame and the shredded part outside the frame look like different pieces of paper. (Not saying they are, but it looks strange.)

    What battery did you use and how many years ago and it didn't lost it's charge? I guess you activated it by remote control, but the receiver consumes too much energy not to drain the battery after weeks, not years. If you managed to do that , you are not an artist , you are the new Tesla and you will get a Nobel price for solving the biggest problem of batteries.

    Just like how the girl’s balloon is flying away, the buyer can no longer have the painting. The girl can still see the balloon and the buyer can still see the painting, but neither of them can get want they want; it’s out of reach.
