In 2018, Sotheby's auctioned a work by Banksy titled "Girl with Balloon," which depicted a girl reaching out for a heart-shaped balloon. When the painting sold for $1.4 million, the artwork unexpectedly self-destructed due to a shredder built into the frame by the artist. The piece was renamed "Love is in the Bin" and became the most expensive work by the street artist.
