Three years ago, the famous masterpiece of the anonymous English underground street art artist Banksy, called Girl with Balloon at the time, was auctioned for 1.4 million pounds.
'Banksy's Love is in the Bin', the new name for 'Girl with Balloon', which it received after the original version of the art work self-destructed in 2018, is being auctioned at Sotheby's.
The work consists of two square 30 by 30 centimetre canvases. According to the preliminary estimates of experts, it will be possible to gain from 3 to 5 million dollars for the image.
Banksy created Balloon Girl in 2005. It is one of the most recognisable works of his career. The original work self-destructed in 2018, immediately after it was auctioned for 1.4 million GBP. The artist himself inserted the shredder into the frame.
