The buyer is a mystery.

"A man dressed in black sporting sunglasses and a hat was seen scuffling with security guards near the entrance to Sotheby's shortly after the incident", Art Newspaper also reported.

If the owner of "Girl with Balloon" brought a civil suit against Banksy for vandalizing this painting, it could puncture the allure of his illegal and destructive work.

Whoever is behind Banksy's artworks, they continue to garner plenty of attention and an ever-increasing amount of money when sold.

The anonymous street artist is known for his satirical street art - characterised by its dark humour and political activism.

A year later, he released an inflatable doll dressed as a Guantánamo Bay prisoner at Disneyland in California.

Art experts are saying that the "damaged" artwork could now be double in value. In an Instagram post Saturday, Banksy claimed the dramatic artistic payoff had been years in the making.

Nokia 7 Plus serves first slice of Androin 9 Pie
Nokia 3.1 Plus comes with a 6-inch (15.24 cm) HD+ display and 18:9 aspect ratio, and is supported by a 3500mAh battery . Aforesaid, HMD has introduced the device in two variants- 2GB+16GB and 3GB+32GB variant priced at Rs 11,499.

But the video didn't answer everyone's questions - not least about the involvement of the auction house.

If you hadn't heard of Banksy before this weekend, you're bound to have heard of him by now. "But whatever the "truth" is doesn't change the performance for me".

Whether the Banksy painting's final bidder is expected to pay "as is" for the painting is unclear.

Banksy is not the first artist to deconstruct his own work. Still, it was a brilliant show, though he really could have used cross-shredded instead. Although he is one of the world's best-known contemporary artists, Banksy has always had a mixed relationship with fame, even anonymously.

The authors conceded that their study fell short of definitive proof. Millions of people have seen Banksy's video of the stunt on Instagram, and it captured worldwide headlines over the weekend. The video showed images of a shredder being implanted into a picture frame along with footage of Friday's auction finale. At the very least, wouldn't the battery have gone flat?

It passed through a shredder seemingly built into the frame which held it.

Very amusing, that, if you ask us.

The wide receiver is also the subject of a second lawsuit from his landlord over damage sustained to the apartment unit. In the lawsuit, Sternberg alleges the pieces of furniture included two very large vases and a heavy ottoman.

The statement added: "In case it was ever put up for auction".

Sotheby's refused to reveal who had bought the piece before it was shredded. "Are these signs that they knew?" According to auction rules, the buyer can withdraw from the lot, if it was damaged.

Sotheby's insists it had no idea about the stunt.

Will the painting go up or down in value? . But perhaps the most improbable notion of all is that anyone truly feels that this most rote and replicated Bansky image is worth either a million dollars or a great deal of kerfuffle about its sensational destruction.

Alex Branczik, Sotheby's Senior Director and head of contemporary art in Europe said: "It appears we just got Banksy-ed". Finally, a hammer pounded to signify the end of the auction.

A spokesman for Sotheby's said: 'We have talked with the successful purchaser who was surprised by the story.
