Others believe the auction house was in on it.'s Mara Montalbano ( has more.

    Banksy is a genius. He thought this out. Part of his art is to rebel against the art market.

    My question is, since we don't know who he is, how can we authenticate any of his work? I'm confused here, he's worth millions yet nobody knows who he is. Doesn't make sense to me.

    He has kind of exposed him self now in doing this because him showing what activated it, allows for someone to know what to look for and I’m sure there must be plenty of cameras in the room and all it would take is for a curious security guard to rewatch the footage find him and expose him. unless he has paid someone else to go in and do it for him in which case he has been clever about it.

    How to make money 101:
    Get a canvas

    Shredding halfway only adds meaning to it. Where we have to let go of certain things or else they will tear us down and we loose them in the end anyway. This is only one interpretation.
