  • The clip suggests Banksy meant to shred the entire image not just the bottom half

Soon after the auction, Banksy had posted a video that showed how he secretly built a shredder into the large gilt frame surrounding the picture.

Banksy's Girl With Balloon is shredded.

"It turns out the famous shredding of Banksy's most famous artwork at a London auction earlier this month may not have gone quite as planned".

Banksy posted a clip of himself building the shredder that ripped up a $2m painting. Now, Banksy has released a behind-the-scenes video, showing exactly how the shredding should have worked.

The auction house said the buyer, who was identified only as "a female European collector and a long-standing client", made a decision to continue with the purchase at the original price.

He said on Instagram: 'Some people think it didn't really shred.

After the prank, the piece was granted certification by Pest Control, Banksy's authentication body, and was given the new title Love Is In The Bin.

Alex Branczik, Sotheby's head of contemporary art in Europe, has also reiterated in a new interview that the auction house was not in on the stunt.

The pic with a snapchat eye-emoji on it shows a man in a white scarf, wearing some kind of a wrist band or watch, hat and black glasses with some device on him allegedly in the same Sotheby's room where the shredding took place.

"When the hammer came down last week and the work was shredded, I was at first shocked, but gradually I began to realise that I would end up with my own piece of art history", the buyer said, according to Sotheby's.

After the anonymous British artist self-destructed one of his most iconic artworks, "Girl with Balloon", some art experts had questioned how it was possible to pull the stunt off without Sotheby's (auction house) knowledge.
