Vandalism and propaganda. The fact that people are willing to pay millions for what basically equates to politicized vandalism shows just how upside down the world of art has become.

The truth about Banksy is that “he” is an industry, not an individual. Do you really think that Sotheby’s and many others weren’t in on Banksy’s latest stunt? Watch closely as the Girl With Balloon painting gets shredded immediately after being sold for $1.4 million. I doubt that one of the world’s largest brokers of fine art failed to thoroughly inspect a painting worth seven figures. Surprise, surprise: the painting is worth even more now.
