Banksy Shreds 'Girl with Balloon' Painting after Sotheby's Auction

Banksy Shreds 'Girl with Balloon' Painting after Sotheby's Auction

Subscribe to our channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKRG8y9o2S8tzFWXJU4nbvQ?sub_confirmation=1 UPDATE: Following the event at Sotheby's, Banksy followed up with a video in which he said the plan was for the entire painting to be shredded but the shredder malfunctioned. Watch his explainer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxkwRNIZgdY Read the original story below. Ever the merry prankster, Bristol-born artist Banksy caused quite the stir by shredding his 2006 spray paint on canvas "Girl with Balloon" painting, shortly after it was sold at a Sotheby's auction on Friday (October 5, 2018) night. Sotheby’s did not provide info on how they acquired the painting. According to the catalog, it was purchased from Banksy by the present owner in 2006. On Instagram, Banksy uploaded a video explaining he had build a shredder into the frame of the painting that he planned to activate were it ever sold at auction. On the video, a graphic reads, "A few years ago, I secretly build a shredder into a painting in case it was ever put up for auction..." The video shows Banksy building the shredder into the painting and then switches to Sotheby's where the painting is being bid on. Not long after the winning bid of £1.04 million was declared, an alarm went off and the painting began to move through the shredder. It appears only the top two-thirds of the painting was shredded. Banksy posted/deleted this video on Instagram (@bansky) but then put it back up on the afternoon of October 6th with the caption, "The urge to destroy is also a creative urge," a quote attributed to Pablo Picasso. “We’ve been Banksy-ed,” Alex Branczik, Sotheby’s European head of contemporary art said at a news conference afterward. “I’ll be quite honest, we have not experienced this situation in the past, where a painting is spontaneously shredded upon achieving a record for the artist.” Branczik emphasized he was “not in on the ruse.” Given the infamy of the event, experts say the painting is now worth much more than the original selling price. #banksy #sothebys Note: Comments and feedback are very much appreciated, but we will remove any one-dimensional insults or attacks.

Nokia also goes into her musical roots, listing a wide range of influences from hardcore, to Mexican ska, '80s goth and punk, explaining her style as a teen was very Gothic, a look she has put behind her because of a change in spiritual beliefs. She goes on to acknowledging while her upbringing gave her the skills of a hustler, she says intent is everything and "art is the playing field between angels and demons." She finishes by discussing her first foray into the music world and the birth of Princess Nokia in 2013.

Princess Nokia: "No One Ever Asks Male Rappers, 'What Do You Think of Female Hip-Hop?'"

Subscribe to our channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKRG8y9o2S8tzFWXJU4nbvQ?sub_confirmation=1 Princess Nokia in part three of her Snobette q&a gives her thoughts on how macho culture damages men and sets the stage for rape culture. When asked about the disparity in the way female versus male rap artists are interviewed in the press, she provides suggestions on questions men should be asked, including their thoughts on women artists they appreciate. On corporate sponsorship of underground music and artists, Nokia says it's only right that companies pay for the influence of the underground, which until recently they've taken from without compensation, noting that while "greed is disgusting, money is a tool." Tackling the complex topic of appropriation, Nokia points out that within popular music videos there are clear cut instance of white washing of black ideas taking place, which she views as deliberate actions done in the name of enforcing a system of white supremacy.
