Moments after selling for $1.4 million dollars, the Banksy art piece of a girl holding a red balloon went bye bye!
This was however planned by the artist years in advance, without what it seems like, anyone else knowing:
Banksy has been know through his career as someone who will pop up and surprise the world with a piece of art and a statement. And in the case of "The Girl Holding the Red Heart Balloon", Banksy's own caption from his shredder IG post says it all:
""The urge to destroy is also a creative urge"- Picasso"
