Banksy‘s shredded artwork, Love is in the Bin, just resold at Sotheby’s for $25.4m USD. That is an almost 18 times increase of the $1.4m USD it initially sold for on that unforgettable moment in the history of contemporary art. The winning bid was over three times Sotheby’s presale estimate and sold to an anonymous Asian collector.

Banksy, ‘Game Changer’, 2020. Sold in 2021 for over $23,000,000, setting a new auction record for the artist.


In May of 2020, an unsuspecting children’s hospital in England received this Banksy painting along with the note, “Thanks for all you’re doing. I hope this brightens the place up a bit, even if it’s only black and white”

The work is a celebration of all the first responders helping with the COVID pandemic; the child has discarded his typical superhero figures to play with a uniformed, masked, and caped nurse.

The proceeds from the sale of this artwork went towards supporting the University Hospital Southampton staff and patients, as well as other healthcare organizations.

Bidding started at $100 and ended at $69,346,250. This was the first digital art piece to be auctioned off and third highest payment in history for a work produced by a living artist. Safe to say digital art and NFTs (Non Fungible Tokens) are the future of Art, collecting and investing.
