than likely present at this auction.

I’m going to tell you everything you need to know, Right now on IO.

So over the weekend, everyone was talking about banksy’s self destructing art piece
that sold for 1.1 million dollars.
Banksy is an anonymous street artist that got his start in bristol.
He’s not only an artist, he’s a political activist and film director.
The world is his canvas, he mostly does his pieces on walls and bridges throughout the
For those who haven’t heard, banksy built a shredder into the frame of one of his paintings.
The painting recently sold at the famous London Auction house Sotheby’s for 1.1 million
The piece was the famous image of the girl holding a balloon.
As the painting was confirmed to be sold to the highest bidder, the piece began going
through a shredder built into the frame and the painting was destroyed.
Amazing right, banksy is such a legend.
To me this makes this an authentic banksy piece, even though its basically mulch now.
But still, sucks to be the person that has to fork out 1.1 million pounds for a piece
of shredded banksy.
Anyways, so banksy trolling the art community in this way was definitely hilarious, but
it might have actually compromised his identity.
Are we really supposed to believe that this extremely expensive art piece wasn’t checked
by the experts at the auctionhouse?
A shredder in the bottom of the frame must have made it extremely heavy.
Paintings are light, especially this painting.
So what conclusion can we draw?
Someone at the Sotheby’s auction house is probably in on it.
Why do people think this?
Because the mass media attention that was created from the self destructing art piece
probably made it worth even more than 1.1 million dollars.
Experts say that it might have doubled the worth of the painting, making it worth more
than 2 pounds which works out to be 3.4 million dollars.
Banksy has been hiding his identity from the world for years.
He is the worlds most well known anonymous graffiti artist.
How is it that someone that’s the most well known anonymous graffiti artist managed to
conceal his identity for so long without someone figuring out who he is?
He probably has accomplices, he creates a lot of his artwork outside which means he’s
probably been seen doing it.
One of the people that keeps coming up as being a possible banksy is a man named Robin
In 1994, banksy checked into a new york hotel using the name Robin.
And in 2017, the DJ goldie reffered to banksy as Rob.
He’s a street artist from Bristol.
Rumors about Robin Gunningham being banksy have been floating around since 2008, but
he’s denied time and time again that he isn’t banksy.
Banksy was also present at this auction.
He took a video of the painting self destructing and posted it on his instagram page and in
the caption there was a Picasso quote.
“the urge to destroy is also a creative urge.
Very deep banksy very deep.
Ok so there is a point to all of this, I know im taking the runaround but stay with me for
And guess who was at the auction.
Here he is getting a video of the art piece being shredded, from the same angle as the
video that banksy posted on his instagram.
Mind officially blown.
Would banksy actually be present at the shredding of his painting?
Well maybe not.
Maybe he wouldn’t risk it.
The video he posted shows the shredding from several angles, which means more than one
person might be in on it.
But that doesn’t change the fact that robin gunningham was present at the auction, and
he’s one of the people that could be banksy.
