David Hollier – Imago Verbosa – 19 October – 2 November

David Hollier is back with his unique brand of art that he calls Imago Verbosa (latin for ‘images made

Banksy painting Girl With Red Balloon ‘self-destructs’ after £1m sale at Sotheby’s

A Banksy painting has “self-destructed” just moments after selling for more than £1m.

Girl With Red Balloon was one of the star attractions at Sotheby’s Contemporary Art Evening Sale on Friday evening.

The winning bid of £860,000 (£1,042,000 including buyer’s premium) was given by phone at around 9pm, well over the pre-auction estimate of between £200-300,000.

But just after the hammer went down, the painting was shredded, thought to be by a remotely activated mechanism within the frame.

The prized work then came out the bottom in strips.
