Buyer of shredded Banksy work goes through with deal

LONDON – The buyer of a work by street artist Banksy that was partially destroyed moments after it sold has gone through with the purchase, Sotheby’s auction house said on Thursday (Oct 11).

The painting Girl with Balloon was passed through a shredder hidden in the frame just after it went under the hammer last week for £1,042,000 (S$1.9 million).
