This story caught my eye today, mostly because I love the work Banksy does. But also because what happened after the purchaser bought the painting. In Banksy fashion right after the sale went final the painting started to disappear from the frame! It actually began to shred right in front of the audiences’ eyes!

What is surprising is that the buyer didn’t back out from the sale after that happened. It’s now being speculated that the artwork is now worth way more than $1.4 million!
