A Banksy painting that automatically shredded itself after being bought at an auction is back on sale.

Two years ago, after being sold for £1.1m, the artwork began to pass through a shredder hidden in its picture frame – leaving the bottom half in tatters.

The shredding was a deliberate stunt by the street artist, with the artwork re-titled ‘Love Is In The Bin’.

The painting shows a stencil of a girl reaching up toward a heart-shaped red balloon. It is one of Banksy’s most popular pieces of art.

After the shredding was completed only the heart shaped balloon was left intact inside the frame. The shredded pieces hung below.

Now the painting, including the shredded bits, is now going back on sale at auction in October.

It’s value has increased too, with an expected selling price of between £4-6 million.
