Cpl's (Corporals) don't fly planes in the RAF Dave, they sit in the second seat and act as talking ballast.

More art than photography......

A stencil spray painting by elusive artist Banksy shredded itself after it was sold for more than £1m.
Girl With Balloon, one of Banksy's most widely recognised works, was auctioned by Sotheby's in London.
The framed piece shows a girl reaching towards a heart-shaped balloon and was the final work sold at the auction.

However, in a twist to be expected from street art's most subversive character, the canvas suddenly passed through a shredder installed in the frame.
Posting a picture of the moment on Instagram, Banksy wrote: "Going, going, gone..."

The 2006 piece was shown dangling in pieces from the bottom of the frame, after it sold for £1.042m on Friday night.
"It appears we just got Banksy-ed," said Alex Branczik, Sotheby's senior director and head of contemporary art in Europe.

Follow up on the Banksy story.......Only the art world could come up with this..............

"A Sotheby's spokesman said: "The new narrative is that Banksy did not destroy a work on its premises, he created one, adding value not detracting."

"Judging by the title that Banksy has given the work, the intention was for the artwork to be a shredded canvas on the floor, beneath an empty frame.
So you could argue that the installation piece of an empty frame on a wall, with the shredded canvas beneath it, would actually be worth more, than what could be considered an 'incomplete' artwork, stuck in the frame."

The partial shredding of a Banksy artwork didn't go entirely to plan, the artist has confirmed.
Love is in the Bin self-shredded in its frame immediately after selling for £860,000 at Sotheby's last week.
Now, Banksy has uploaded a video suggesting the entire canvas was supposed to shred, and not just two thirds of it.
A clip of a canvas shredding in full is seen in the video with the caption: "In rehearsals, it worked every time."

Last night I spent time shredding a load of old bank statements and suchlike ... the shredded pieces are now in a bin, but can easily be emptied out to be a pile of shredded paper on the floor..

Anyone any idea how much that would be worth?

Not a lot but you may have at least shredded properly.  I’d don’t know about your shredder but ours cuts into little bits rather than long strips.

Not that convinced by Banksy btw. But that’s probably part of a wider lack of understanding of art..

Is he really better than other (not that I could name one) graffiti artists? Has he just managed to milk “media fame”?

Any on a wider issue, why does value depend so much on who painted it rather than whether it looks good to you?

From those comments and questions I'd say you know quite a bit about the Art world, squigglev2.   >:( >:( >:(
