“Art history was made when Banksy’s Girl with a balloon was auctioned off at £860 000. Just as the hammer dropped, the artwork self-destroyed – much to the surprise of the audience. Bansky himself had installed a shredder inside the frame, and a new work of art was created – Love is in the Bin”
Events like these do not go unnoticed by brands, and Finn.no quickly had their spin-off in place. With a golden frame and a “shredded” poster, this creative solution was displayed at Aker Brygge and in Lillestrøm. The images have gone viral and have not only set records on Finn.no’s social media accounts but also been picked up by several international blogs. Read more here and here.
According to Sotheby’s, Banksy’s artwork has now doubled its value.
