FRIEZE WEEK


During Frieze Week, amongst hundreds of art openings throughout the city, the most brilliant event was last Friday night at Sotheby’s when Banksy’s beloved iconic painting “Girl With Balloon” was auto-shredded by its own frame just minutes after the hammer came down on auction record of £1.04m. Some years ago the artist built a shredding machine into the frame in case the work was ever put up for auction. Experts say the artwork could now reach a record £2m in value!
