Banksy is a pseudonym for an English anonymous street-art artist. He is considered one of the world's most popular and wellknown artists. His art usually comments on current events, politics and morality. One of his most popular motifs, "Girl with Balloon", a version on canvas sold at auction in 2018 for over £1 million, moments after selling it started to automatically self-destruct through a hidden shredding mechanism that had been placed in the frame by the artist years before. Making headlines the world over, appropriately renamed "Love is in the Bin" by Banksy afterwards, sold again in 2021 for £18.5 million.Read more
