    I’m not sure anyone knows who Bansky really is.

    There is speculation he is Robert Del Naja who is in the band Massive Attack (one of my favs) but no one has ever truly identified him.

    What’s crazy is this painting is probably worth more now shredded.

    That's what I was going to say. Dude that bought it probably still wants it because the value just escalated especially since you can still see the picture, even though it was shredded.

    Probably a ruse by everyone involved.
